Hawthorn Artist Society presents a group exhibition of one subject by many artists.
The subject is a life model that often works with the society. As the model has been rendered in many different poses over time, this exhibition describes his form - torso, head, hands and limbs - as they appealed individually to the artists.
Featuring paintings and drawings in a variety of media, the exhibition is a comprehensive description of a single subject by many observers.

Learn new possibilities from an introduction to the complex underpainting, vibrant colours and powerful, seemingly distilled, drawn images that identify Heather’s work.
