Auguste Rodin

When looking for guidance in my sculptural work, I always turn to Rodin. I first encountered his work at the V&A and was struck by their turbulence and movement.

I often draw the works twice (as above, The Scream) using different mediums and scales.

Rodin's work never fails to shock me, displaying the figure at its most physical, expressions of anger, raw lust, wasting age (The Old Courtesan, above), cowed muscular strength (Adam, below). Even though Rodin is very much a part of the art 'establishment', or canon, his work remains fresh to me.

In the absence of a life model, I turn to Rodin's sculptures as a substitute, often finding more inspiration than in the real thing.

These drawings were made from a book, but I do hope to visit the Museum of Rodin in Paris before the end of 2014, to draw his work in the round.

    With Rodin, Jacques Doillon gives us a very strange movie. While the actors are great, the light is OK and the cinematography is flawless, what ruin the film is the story and how it is told.

    Rather than going through the events of the life of the sculptor, Rodin is only showing glimpses of it like Quotes, moments of works or moments of love. The problem with it is, though the chronological order is preserved, that the spectator is completely lost with untold names or missing events and you always need to think about what happened before in the movie to finally understand what took place an hour ago, which is completely annihilating the empathy for the characters because you can't feel the same as them because you have no idea what just happened.

    In addition to that, the scenario have no real purpose, the movie is starting nowhere, and is ending nowhere. Moreover, there are totally useless nude scenes, which is sometimes embarrassing because its going nowhere and is never justified. I'm OK with that, but there must be at least 20 minutes of these, and because the movie is often boring and overall too long, it's annoying.
