The Nude Figure

Country:

The Wayne Art Center invites artists to submit work in the mediums of painting, drawing and sculpture for a juried exhibition to accompany the exhibition, “The Nude, Mirror of Desire”. Subject matter of submissions should be focused on the human figure with an emphasis on, but not exclusive to, the nude figure.

Jurors Paul DuSold and Scott Noel, look to assemble a survey of contemporary responses to the nude to illuminate resonances between traditions of imagining the figure and the artist’s personal experience. The theme of mirroring is a metaphor for the persistence of the nude as a theme in art and our shared visual understandings of the body.

Jurors – Paul DuSold and Scott Noel

Wayne Art Center is pleased to welcome Paul DuSold and Scott Noel as the jurors for the The Nude Figure exhibition.

Paul DuSold lives and maintains a studio in the Mt. Airy section of Philadelphia. He exhibits his work in Philadelphia at the Gross McCleaf gallery. Paul is a graduate of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. His work is best described as atmospheric representational with subject matter including nudes, portraits and still-life. For many years Paul has taught painting at the Woodmere Museum and the Fleisher Art Memorial.

His teaching methodology is to emphasize in teaching that it is always on understanding of fundamental. I believe the students are best served by learning to see with more sensitivity and handle their materials with more awareness and sensitivity.

Paul DuSold’s artwork is best described as atmospheric representationalism. Still life, figures in landscape and portraits are his preferred subject matter. DuSold’s influences are mostly sixteenth and seventeenth century Italian and Spanish painters; he is perhaps most informed by the use of oil paint as an expressive medium by the Venetian artists of the sixteenth century. The primary aspiration of his efforts is to paint pictures whole effect of meaning is achieved through a very acute balance of color, light and shadow and scale of forms.

Scott Noel began teaching and exhibiting in Philadelphia in 1980, two years after completing undergraduate study at Washington University in St. Louis. Since that time he has mounted over thirty solo exhibitions at galleries, universities and museums alongside many group shows. Solo shows have appeared at the State Museum in Harrisburg, the University of Virginia, the Bowery Gallery, the Painting Center and fifteen exhibitions at the More Gallery, Mangel, and Gross McCleaf Galleries in Philadelphia. Noel has curated exhibitions for museums, “The Evidence of the Senses” at the Woodmere Museum in 1990 and “Imaginative Affinities: Echoes of Edwin Dickinson in Contemporary Painting” at the Pennsylvania Academy in 2002. He has also written catalogue essays for peers and forbears, including Lennart Anderson, Larry Day, Rose Naftulin and Sangram Majumdar. Noel’s paintings are included in numerous private, public, and corporate collections. He has received grants from the Bader Foundation, The Pennsylvania Council for the Arts and the Independence Foundation as well as a fellowship to the Cite Internationale des Arts in Paris. His work has been reviewed in Arts and Art in America and he has twice been profiled in American Artist (1997, 2009). Scott teaches figure drawing and painting in the Certificate/BFA and MFA programs and is a critic in the MFA program.
