Art Series by Genny Gadd

My name is Genny Gadd, and I am a 21-year-old Melbourne-born artist. Ever since I can remember I have been drawing. Drawing, for me, was a way to communicate the beauty of the world, when words didn’t seem adequate.

From a very young age I have been inspired by the technical mastery of classical and academic art, as well as the dynamism, inherent energy, and beauty of the human body. This series, predominantly influenced by the photographs of Man Ray, who also saw the body as a beautiful and spiritual entity, combines academic drawing and whimsical illustrative style. In combining these two disparate techniques, I hope that the viewer is presented with just enough to fill in the gaps with her imagination, and is invited to view the body in a unique and almost magical way.
