Shadow Play: The Shade, Graphite on Paper, 36.5x45

Although the nude has been a constant in my work since 1972, shadows have come and gone in various series of drawings. When I began the Shadow Play series in 2010, shadows became integral to my drawings of the nude. Exploring the narrative interplay between the nude and shadows and how they combine forces to generate conversations about humanity continues in that series as well as other shadow related themes: Shadow Myths, Shadow Tales, Shadow Dreams and Night Shadows. In the each of the shadow series, the voice of the narrative can come from many sources. For example, it is the shadow that commands the male nude in the drawing titled Jump! and in Don't Push the female nude speaks to the group of shadows that are crowding her. The influence of other artists may also be reflected, such as Toulouse-Lautrec in Yvette's Gloves and Rodin in The Shade or Maillol in Källen.
