Fully From Life Semi-Finalists

Thank you to The Florence Academy of Art for sponsoring this category.

The Art Renewal Center is proud to present the winners and finalists of the Fully From Life Category in the 15th International ARC Salon Competition. This category is intended to highlight works created solely from life without the use of any photographic references. This category is open to all subject matter and mediums, from drawings in charcoal to figurative work in oil done from live models as well as still life and animal art. Working directly from life poses unique challenges to the artist. The natural world cannot be copied - it must be interpreted. In the absence of an intermediary, like photography, to assist in the translation of the subject, the artist is guided only by his or her individual exploration of the subject to create a uniquely personal representation of reality.
