Life drawing (drawing the human form in its various postures) has been practised by humans from prehistory to the present largely driven by the ideologies or purposes of the times.  Since the 16th century it has been an integral, even principal discipline of art practice.  As such, completion of a life drawing marathon at the New York Studio School is a mandatory component of its Master’s Program since its inception in 1988. Marathons are held a number of times during the year, and involve ten consecutive twelve hour days of intensive drawing of the model/s.  Rob Douma and Donna Foley each completed a marathon in 2016. Whilst the realities of each were a positive experience, they came away with quite different perspectives perhaps shaped by their personal life experiences possibly predisposed by gender.  Their exhibition Life After NYC explores themes in common from their unique perspectives augmented by supplementary expressions of difference.
