THE BODY AS ART

from Monday 20th December to Sunday 26th December 2010



A gallery show for Art-Express `:iconart-express: guest curated by Ellyevans679 :iconellyevans679:
Additional notes by AlexandraB24 :iconalexandrab24: gallery curator.


This show explores the human body as a subject for art in different artistic media, from the figurative arts to photography.
The human body has been source of endless fascination for artists from time immemorial and across cultures.
In the European tradition we are heavily indebted to the exploration of symmetry and perfection of proportion at the core of ancient Greek art, whose legacy can still be found in the academic idea of the 'classical body'.
Here Ellyevans679 has gathered some of the most representative work by the talented artists on deviantArt to illustrate the theme of the human body as a work of art and as a subject for art.
