BODIES. By Callie Davidson.

NOTE FROM THE ARTIST- ''I started creating pastel studies of the human body after walking through the main sculpture gallery in the V and A. I was interested that these artists from over a century ago, had captured the simple beauty of the human body through their sculptures. Too often in our modern society the body is seen as merely functional. I try to use colours that are as vibrant as possible, to highlight the beauty and perplexity of the human body that we often neglect. This particular image is drawn from the 'Torso of Banovic Strahinja' by Ivan Meštrovic, 1908.''
