Painting the Male Nude

talk by John Z. Robinson

Wednesday 19 April | 10:30 AM - 11:30 AM

A DPAG Society Talk

Dunedin printmaker, jeweller and painter John Z. Robinson was inspired as a young art student by prominent English artists such as Francis Bacon and David Hockney, and acclaimed local artists such as Ralph Hotere, each of whom painted and drew from live models.

In this talk, John will give a brief history of the male nude in art and discuss how he came to incorporate painting nudes into his practice over many years.

What are the challenges and rewards of working with a live model?

What are the expressive possibilities of working with the human form?
