Creative Collaboration

I've had the pleasure of collaborating with some talented figurative artists. A variety of artistic styles are represented on this site, ranging from gesture sketches to oil paintings. The human form is arguably the most difficult subject for an artist to render, and capturing a spiritual or emotional quality is even more challenging. I greatly admire those who have mastered this skill.

My Perspective on Artistic Nudes

The nude figure is a pure and timeless representation of mankind, without fashion clues to define the setting in a given time period. With no uniform to define the social class or employment role, nudity also represents honesty and authenticity – the naked truth – and one’s true self without any façade. Nudes in nature portray mankind living in harmony with the environment. While some people associate nudity exclusively with a sexual context, I don't share this mindset. Consider the wholesomeness of Norman Rockwell skinny dipping scenes. Think of fine art nudes by Michelangelo, Auguste Rodin, and Maxfield Parrish. Could anyone seriously question the dignity of The Thinker?

The Art Model's Handbook
The Art Model’s Handbook: The Naked Truth about Posing for Art Classes and Fine Artists explains what you need to know to pose for art classes and professional artists. Recommended for art models, artists, and workshop leaders. When the artist and model are on the same page, the creative collaboration is more productive and inspiring.
