Nude Study

The “nude study” is a culmination of ideas I was toying with for my series The Rite of Spring. I was experimenting with process, imagery emotion and form; trying to find a way to embody the musical texture in the continuous process of growth without limiting it with objective imagery. Here you see the juxtaposition of subdued, submissive forms working harmoniously amongst aggressive gestures of color.
