Nude Art Collection Features
Serie II - Edition VI, 2010 October, 4th
Welcome Friends, fans and fellow creatives. This week we are featuring a set of nudes that cross an interesting spectrum. From the conventionally structured, soft and still powerfully crafted art nudes showing the glory of the human figure to the whimsically-tilted works of fantasy, historical fiction and romanticism.
This week's favourite
"Healing" by photographer Amy Ballinger and submitted by Bella has a profound sense of soothing. It is actually a soothing balm. Notice Bella's gentle and restful pose with a subtle double-exposure giving the viewer a sense of motion. The world healing is of course related to wholeness, even restoration and water in many cultures and religious imagery is associated with water: baptism, new birth, renewal and cleansing.
The bathing figure resonates with a universal need and desire for refreshment, rest and healing. The pose and setting make this image a visual balm itself. It evokes a sense of yearning for stillness, and will perhaps speak to you of your wounds that cry out for healing and your weariness that craves stillness.
The photo has a painterly quality to it and The textures here of course speak to my own textured eye and I find an artistic Kinship with what Bella achieved with Amy in this lovely and profoundly captivating work. I find the post-processing to be "just right" making the image both other worldly while avoiding becoming cartoonish. There is great skill, care and love give to this work and you can feel it.
