Ken Doody does figurative photography. He's always on the lookout for models, so I said 'yes' and we did the shoot last winter. What's interesting is the way his work as a psychologist informs his art. He has a great interest in people and how they perceive themselves.
This is me venting my frustrations on trying to find parking in St. John. Just joking :D A little acting was required to get a range of emotions.
These were taken at Ken's studio in St. John. So very cool, they have a studio co-op. That's six artists sharing the same space so rent is ridiculously low. *Sigh* Dreaming of cheap studio space in Moncton...
If you'd be interested in modeling, you will probably run into him at an opening at Buckland's gallery, like I did or he wouldn't mind if you sent him an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Raymond Martin, child psychologist/artist did a presentation for our club, Café des Artistes, last Thursday. He has a joyous, distinct style and he told us a bit how the way his work informs his art.
For artists who have a day job, it can be frustrating to find the time to create (or artists without a day job for that matter!). It's a relief to realize that time spent at work, on mundane activities, or taking care of our families informs our artwork and makes it richer. What do you think. Is it even possible, or desirable to create in a vacuum?
