Artists Paul Warrick and Angelo Pizzigallo show a selection of their work portraying the female form, from delicate drawing and watercolour to an explosion of colour and power. Alongside the paintings are comments from life models, many who appear in the paintings. They explore the empowerment gained by women from modelling and feeling confident in your body, whatever shape, size or condition.
“I try to remember to value and appreciate the body I am blessed to have, even after years of abusing and disliking parts of it. It functions and serves me very well.”
“Cancer has ravaged my body, but this is the new me with all the wonky, droopy wrinkly bits that surgery and rapid weight loss has provided. Posing has been self-liberating.”
“It provokes honesty and a sense of freedom and empowerment.”
The exhibition is open daily from 11 – 5pm
Private View on Friday 1 March, 6 – 8pm
