From 13th January to 13th March, Artist Ottelien Huckin is bringing a modern and sensual approach to classical figure drawing to Bankside Hotel’s Artist Studio Space. Edinburgh College of Arts graduate and Signature Art Prize finalist Ottelien Huckin is a Bath and London based artist whose practice aims to capture the qualities of a preparatory sketch though modernized, intimate figure drawings. Contemplating the question of what it means to inhabit one’s own body, Huckin strives to reveal the nude in an autonomous, empowered and sensualized way that reinterprets old master drawings and interacts with the artist’s personal observations and intuition.
During her residency Huckin will expand upon the theme of Illustration and The Avant Garde, creating works based on the exploration and examination of the human figure. Utilizing familiar techniques and processes in addition to branching out with the incorporation of additional colour and dimension, the artist will continue to challenge the traditional norms of classical figure drawing and offer visitors a fresh perspective on this process.
Adopting Bankside’s Makers’ space, Huckin will continue to deepen her practice and experience as an emerging artist. Featured events include a live figure drawing workshop, an artist inspired three course dinner at Bankside’s ArtYard, and a “meet the artist” evening. Click here to see all upcoming events.
