A Tribute to Pam Whidden

Models are to Artists Like Flowers are to Bees

The human figure has captured the imagination of artists and viewers for centuries. It represents both a tangible and intangible reality; a scientific and spiritual wonder; a microcosm of the macrocosm. Artistic depiction of the human figure allows us to see and appreciate what we already know about ourselves in private in a completely public way. This collaborative interaction between artists and models is a major reason why the human figure is still so central to the creative process.

Vision vs Reality

Jun 8 - ongoing

Dreams are hard to bring to life. The original vision is almost always different from the final reality. Taking a delicate and dramatic design and fashioning that vision info a functional vehicle requires numerous adjustments, refinements, and compromises. Some for the better, some for the worse. It is fascinating to see the original vision side-by-side with its ultimate reality.
