  • Keira
    The concept here was to appear as if the model is floating away. No Photoshop trickery here though...Her lower half is on an ottoman and she is doing a sit-up. took a few shots to get it to look relaxed - keira makes it look easy!

  • Wood Nude #1

    This series of "wood Nudes" is from a gallery exhibit in which I participated at the end of 2009. John Skau, a talented artist living in High Point, lost his struggle with cancer in 2007. All of his unused raw materials - wood - were donated to an arts group called Bricolage. Bricolage gave the materials to a variety of artists and told us to create works from the raw materials in order to have a memorial show in John's honor. John sculpted with wood - he made amazing baskets and wall hangings using mostly scraps of wood discarded from the furniture industry. When I saw the wood I immediately saw the shapes mimicking the curves of the body. I photographed the pieces and used the textures of the wood as an overlay as well as a vicual element. Most of these images are a composite of five layers in Photoshop. My thanks to model Emilie for helping we with this project!

    The show was amazing. There was an extremely diverse representation of the wood. It was impressive to see Johns raw materials transformed into so many different visions. John's memory will remain. A google search of his name will give links to many of his works.

Studio Nudes - B&W

The nude is a timeless subject in art. It is also controversial. Some people see beauty and some people see something distasteful. I never find much neutrality on the subject.  I'm not so sure why we are so intimidated by the human body. By design, it is beautiful, functional and pleasurable. What I see in the nude is the same thing I see in a building - beauty, function and structure. I don't pretend to bring anything new to this subject. These are just images that I make for the joy of doing it. I don't know why.

I hope you enjoy this collection. 

 

What spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful that the garment with which it is clothed?
Michelangelo
