Peach Black Life Drawing Club Exhibition Opening Night – November 2020

“We started last year these life drawing sessions but this year especially after the COVID outbreak it really picked up.” 

Regularly selling out instalments as artists sought each other and art beyond their living rooms, regulars turned to contributors when Peach Black Director Matteo Bernasconi dedicated an exhibition to his students. 

“Every Wednesday and Saturday now we have Life Drawing Club and everyone can join from any level, beginners, artists; we just hang out here and we draw with wine and nice music for two hours and it is amazing” said Matteo. “It’s sold out every week so I decided to do an exhibition at Peach Black for all the people that come every week as a thank you and to have a great night together.

“There is a big variety – most are people who like art and drawing and want to learn to draw and then there are some artists who are coming every time as well. It’s a good mix and if you come to see the exhibition you can tell the level is really high; it doesn’t really look like people who are learning.” 

Boasting a line down Regent Street, Chippendale, in light of COVID-19 it was the first exhibition in months for so many patrons where some on display had never exhibited before.

“The works I am exhibiting are from the ones who commit the most; they always come and become really good,” said Matteo. “I really like to look at them altogether; there are some that stand out but it’s very subjective. 

“I really like the different approaches, some people use watercolours, some charcoal, some they just use lines and some people just shapes; the models are almost all the same because I only use three models so the individuality of the artists stands out in how they approach the same pose.”

Displaying in November, the Peach Black Life Drawing Club Exhibition is bookended by two of Matteo’s solo exhibitions The Homo Sapiens and commencing December 3 The Cure; both centred on what Matteo highlights we’ve so greatly missed in light of COVID-19 – touch.  

“The opening night was amazing; we had a lot of fun, we had so many people but we did our best in light of restrictions,” concluded Matteo. “Most of the people have never exhibited before and it is great to give them this opportunity and see this happiness, this excitement. It was good, we sold many.”
