Shadow Form is a collection of life-size charcoal drawings that explore the associations we have with our human body. The artist worked with models using the nude form as the physical concept of the mind’s shadow, a vessel separate from the mind itself. Often deemed mysterious, the large scale of this exhibit aims to bring the human body out of the shadow of shame and censorship and into the light of discussion; highlighting the connective power of the human form. This Shadow Form is always present, expressing our history, and carrying the residue of our shared humanity.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.
