Following the unequivocally positive response to their previous ‘Midnight Drawing’ event at the Sussex County Arts Club (see related post), those lovely ladies from Artists, Models, Ink last night staged a follow up. ‘Midnight Feast‘ had a similar format: a single, three-hour tableau vivant featuring multiple models (four this time – Kate, Frankie, Emma & Lucy) artfully arranged around a purpose-built set. Clusters of fruit and veg alluded to the feast theme whereas the significance of the two skeletons was less clear. A post-modern comment on eating disorders? A nod to the Zombie March that had taken over the streets of Brighton earlier in the day? Whatever, they looked great.
The range and diversity of the work produced by those present was, once again, fascinating to behold. Here’s my effort, a large-ish drawing by my standards (76 x 56 cm) in coloured pencil and diluted Dr Martin’s sepia wash.
Well done Kate & the gang; another triumph!
