WHILE you and I might find sitting in a room filled with jars of severed heads and limbs a little on the morbid side, Gail Divine finds it fascinating.

Her works titled Bodies celebrates the generosity of individuals who give their bodies to science for the benefit of humankind. The works currently are showing at The Church Gallery.

Ms Divine says the complexity of the human body is truly amazing.

“The human form is so complex and we should appreciate and be proud of it,” she says.

Accompanying the human artworks are her drawings depicting dogs, which Ms Devine says are based on sheer trust, love and togetherness.

“Dogs are so forgiving, they’re not like us humans,” she says.

Ms Divine’s favourite work from her “dogs” work is Jete and Curly, which she drew on her recent trip to Uruguay.

“Jete, the bigger, grey dog, was blind and he and the smaller dog, Curly, were the best of friends.

Jete used to howl for Curly in the middle of the night and it was just great to see these dogs care for one another,” she says.

The dogs’companionship and longing are evident in many of the 38 artworks.

Previously working under the name Gail Mason, she has exhibited for the past three years in Uruguay.

Her exhibition Bodies and Dogs is on at The Church Gallery, which is located at 284 Stirling Highway Claremont. The exhibition runs until October 28.
