According to Cezanne, “Monet is just an eye. But what an eye!” This exhibit presents the results of many eyes beholding one image—the human form. Every Thursday evening at the AGSM, these 18 artists work side-by-side, drawing a live model. Some of the artists have been participating in the group for decades; some joined as recently as this year. Each beholds a single model through distinctive eyes. The eye of each beholder produces the I of each artwork. Some artists deconstruct the body, producing abstraction, cubism, surrealism, or symbolism. Others seek to capture the play of light on flesh, constructing impressionistic images. A few opt for realism, or the complex visual vocabulary of expert cartooning. All focus on the process of seeing how the human body moves through space. Eye of the Beholder is a seriously playful collection of diverse images by like-minded colleagues who are serious about the human form.
