June, 2024 Art of Modeling Figurative Exhibit Group Show-

Breaking Boundaries of Body Exclusivity

This exhibit features figurative artists Erica Podwoiski, Renee Patrick Martinez, Megan Morgan, Jasmine Mann, David Osburn and Virginia Kostmayer who are breaking down the boundaries of body exclusivity in art.  Historically, the models depicted in art have been overwhelmingly white, thin, able-bodied, and cis-gendered individuals. These artists and their models are paving the way toward equal representation of marginalized populations in art.

Boutique fine art modeling agency, Art of Modeling believes that all body shapes, sizes, colors, ages and genders are worthy of representation in works of art and is a proponent of increasing the accessibility of figure modeling as an artistic profession to community members who identify as underrepresented in fine arts.  We aim to send a wide variety of fine art models into studios and classrooms across Colorado's front range in order to provide professional fine artists and students of art with a diverse range of bodies to depict in their work.

I am forever pulled to the simplicity and complexity of the human figure. I attempt to capture a pose quickly and fluently. The gesture is so personal, so close and I am so very aware of its image. I, therefore, feel that I must work within the confines of the figure again and again. 

-Robyn Cochran Ragland

 

Live model drawings for artists are akin to first drafts for writers.  The time limit of a live pose does not allow for planning, revision, or judgment and this is its appeal for me. Much like a meditative process, it requires the artist to be completely present.
