Edited by Sam Phillips, Artists Working From Life opens with an introductory essay presenting the historical context for this traditional practice.
Taking us from Michelangelo’s marbles to photographic self-portraits, this book goes on to document the fascination artists have always held for the human body. Often a key part of their early training, drawing and sculpting from life can inform their later work in a multitude of ways.
With in-depth conversations exploring the many ways artists work ‘from life’: from Jeremy Deller’s open life class with Iggy Pop as model, to Jonathan Yeo’s innovative use of 3D scanners and virtual reality, this generously illustrated book overturns many of the assumptions about ‘working from life’.
Including contributions from Caroline Bugler, Laura Gascoigne, Martin Gayford, Angela Kingston, Adrian Locke, Ben Luke, Sam Phillips, Michael Prodger and Annette Wickham.
160 pages with 150 colour illustrations.
