au naturel - drawing the nude Exhibition Statement

Charcoal on paper is, for me, the soul of all media.
Faced with a sheet of beautiful white paper and a stick of willow charcoal there are no escape routes, no ways to disguise, no distractions such as colour, and no second chances. Just a purity.
The paper can be soft and yielding or hard and brittle, smooth or textured, and the charcoal can glide or drag over it or crumble into it. Fingers can explore the possibilities.
Add the model into this mix – so much more than muscles, skin and bones. Empathy with the model, with the desire to depict the unadorned human form, with no costumes or background to seduce the eye, is paramount. Together you strive to make a work of art and suggest a meaning or mystery to it.
How exciting to draw a line, black on white, and start the journey! Glenys Buzza

The work is "very fresh and full of beautiful energy". Ginny Grayson, Bachelor of Fine Arts with Distinction, RMIT, Melbourne. Lecturer in drawing at RMIT and Monash Universities.
