The Cultural Center at Ponte Vedra Beach will open a unique exhibition featuring artist Claire Kendrick, March 6 – April 17th. “Figuratively Speaking” is a series of oil paintings and sketches which studies the human figure. Each year the curatorial committee select artists to exhibit and as study of the nude figure has long been at the heart of traditional education in the arts, it is an important exhibition and shows a real commitment to painting.
This is a contemporary body of work that brings a fresh, modern approach to figure painting. There is a freedom and energy in the way she applies paint and builds the paintings in this series as she pushes the boundaries towards abstract.
“The dialogue is something I strive for–what is spoken and what is left unspoken–it’s the tension and energy between the painting and the private dialogue–the interpretation of the viewer(s)–their need to fill in the gaps. Body language is the unspoken dialogue.” – Claire Kendrick

Top Tip – I use Sennelier Oil Pastels Standard – Portrait Colors and Landscape Colors
“Sennelier Oil Pastels are made from the highest quality pigments, an extremely pure synthetic binding medium, and neutral pH mineral wax. The non-siccative nature of the binding medium ensures it will not oxidize and has no effect on film stability, while the mineral wax gives the pastels their creamy, buttery texture not unlike that of lipstick. The high pigment load in Sennelier Oil Pastels provides them with an opacity and covering power.” – ASW

Claire J. Kendrick presents a contemporary body of work that brings a fresh, personal, unique, and modern approach to figure painting. There is a freedom and energy, not only in the way she applies paint, but in the way she sees the figure that pushes the boundaries toward the abstract. “The dialogue is something I strive for. What is spoken and what is left unspoken. It is the tension and energy between the painting and the viewer’s interpretation of the work.”Claire paints landscape, still-life, and figurative paintings. Collectors respond to the unique contemporary style and the expressive way in which she paints.Claire J KendrickDrawing, Exhibition, Figure, Oil PaintingJuly 29, 20130 comments
Its been great to find a figure drawing/ painting group at CORK , this is a great group of artists in the Jacksonville area. The class is a self directed style session that is broken into timed segments. We draw from a live model and each time the human form is observed in a new body posture – sitting, standing or even sleeping. It is the study or stylized depiction of the human form. Here are two paintings and each pose was painted in a 30 min segment.
