“to be naked is to be deprived of clothing; the nude is a body clothed in art.” – Kenneth Clark.
All 150 contributing artists were given an identical canvas upon which was printed the dotted outline of an artist’s wooden mannequin, which was universally ignored – the brief being to clothe it in art – Wooden Art in my case, thus The King, Elvis Presley.
The proceeds of the silent auction went to the AGBI & the CAC Trust charities.
