Art Model

Nude with Stones, 1995

I recently watched a netflix movie, The Artist and the Model. A beautiful classic b&w film, immersed in feeling, that inspires me to work with a model once again. I live in an isolated rural and relatively conservative area (tho replete with nature), and it can be difficult to find a model for this near-sacred collaboration. That is, it isn’t a college town with art students and art galleries. It is a fine place for making art, but the marketplace is somewhere distant. The movie though, and the image above, urges one on. This one I made using infrared film, one of my favorites for this style of work. Nature and natural.
