Ursula Barton

I've always lost time in figure drawing, being fully present with a friend or stranger's body, seeing and celebrating it. After over a decade of this practice, I have wanted to challenge myself to externalize a flaw I have never been proud of in hopes of becoming more aware of it, changing it, or at the very least giving it a brief positive purpose: projecting my internal narrative onto the life in front of me. Using only the poses chosen by the model, this becomes a practice in losing and gaining control, a dialogue instead of the constant monologue in my head.
