Start video player

This Artsville documentary (full title: Under the Skin of the Auckland Life Drawing Group) visits a group of artists who have been gathering together for over 30 years to take part in a life drawing. Group members — sculptor Terry Stringer and painters Jan Nigro, John Andrew and Mary McIntyre — talk about the inspiration that the models provide and the journeys they take the images on in terms of their own art. The early history of art schools in Auckland is discussed and the nude models break their silence to discuss the enjoyment they get from participating.

Key Cast & Crew

The brain is programmed to look for the human and the old landscape that was characterised by the profile in the mountain of a sleeping man is part of the tradition of seeing the human all around us.
– Terry Stringer
