Event description

Description

Atypical? is a series of nude oil paintings by Stacey Korfiatis that critiques the fetishisation of youth, thinness, and unattainable perfection by looking at and normalising difference and diversity in human bodies.

The exhibition will be at the iconic Black Cat Gallery from 18 to 29 July. Alongside the exhibition, Stacey will also run a one–day life drawing and painting workshop on 24 July to celebrate the beauty of the human body.

The workshop is designed for emerging/intermediate/established artists who are looking to explore a life drawing of a human body with a model. Participants are encouraged to bring along their practice materials (pencils, paints, brushes, paper, canvas and other materials that they would normally work with).

The artist will not give a lesson on how to ‘draw’ or ‘paint’ but how to appreciate and celebrate the beauty in bodies of all forms including ageing, ethnicity, visible and invisible disabilities, short- and long-term illness and injury, and neuro diversity.

Stacey Korfiatis holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Metals & Jewellery) from Monash University. She has had ongoing involvement in the Melbourne art community since 2008. She has participated in a number of group, solo and curated shows. In addition to making her own work, Stacey has worked as studio assistant for jeweller Blanche Tilden.
