It Figures-

As an artist, the first thing one must be able to do is to draw ….and to draw well.  The human form is most challenging, and as a result, learning how to draw it is paramount to being an artist.

This exhibition features juried drawings by Grade 11 & 12 students from Rosedale Heights School of the Arts.  For the past 2 years, the students have been immersed in Life Drawing, beginning with the skeleton, progressing to muscles and advancing to drawing professional life drawing models.  The results have been amazing, with these students being very well prepared for post secondary education.

I wish to thank:

  • The  dedicated students who use expressive beautiful line.
  • Mr. Barrie Sketchley, Principal, for his vision in creating Rosedale Heights School of the Arts, and for always saying “Yes you can”.
  • The strong Parents Art Council for their fundraising, volunteering, purchasing skeletons and providing funding for models.
  • The students who helped mount this exhibition.
  • The teaching Staff of Rosedale Heights School of the Arts for their encouragement and advice.
  • Sarah Crawley and David Field for the poster design.
  • Steve Lewis, AOCA, Juror
  • Humbertown Framing
  • *Hotshot

    Viewers of the “It Figures” collection at Hotshot this past fortnight have tended to ignore the doorside description of the event, I’m told. This is a good thing. Such viewers will have done themselves a service if their first viewing leaves them unaware that all of these drawings were done by high school students. Who knew that people so young could provide evidence of such a wide range of mature considerations of the human form? Who even knew that our bodies had all these astonishing latencies, here summoned from apparently ancient depths for us to marvel at?

    I would not have wanted to be shopping in nearby Kensington Market without knowing that, for example, Shanae Winslow’s charcoal and white-pencil artwork had re-arranged the human form into an assortment of spheres and discrete orbs without losing the whole in its parts, nor that Agniesva Wierzbicka’s “Serenity” could be so mimetic and yet add something lustrous that bears and shares the light with such luminous intensity.

    A number of the works in the collection play with inside and outside. Eric Ferguson’s woman rendered in India ink silences us, stills us. We are peeking at a woman who might be sleeping or resting, and who might well be dreaming us as the viewers. How else to account for the fact that the shadowed surfaces here are all doing double work, reminding us of the hollows of the body-as-temple while simultaneously engaging in a riot of internal display: aren’t these shadowed portions a set of cross sections in a body or soul displayed, even flayed, for us? Yet we get this interiority without being disturbed or feeling as if we have disturbed the woman’s reveries. There is hardly a trace of guilt in our perusal of a sort of topo map of the female form, with the tracery as the contours of a detailed map. The land lies before us.

    Check out, as well, Kesang Nanglu’s careful anatomical reproduction…[unable to finish this review right now as life—still life!—intrudes, but visitors to Hotshot would do well to allow at least an hour to spend with the art here, as it has either been culled from a far larger group of works, or the artists were already a select, inspired group.]
