Painting the Female Nude
My first exhibition gave me a wonderful feeling of completeness when I printed my work and displayed it for the first time…Even though this work, unlike my commercial photography, doesn’t have to answer to anyone, I still had closure when the viewers understood what I was doing with this kind of photography, turning it into painting.
These are some photos of the shoot, not ones exhibited, but they give you a sense of what we were up to. Click to enlarge.
I photographed artist Alex Burrows-Mcgill, painting a performance of Beth Radish, at my Studio 13. The photos I took were inspired by the atmosphere of these 2 artists, that worked at ease together. Beth’s performance was messy & fun, so were Alex’s paintings.
The photos above are part of that collection, ‘Painting the Female Nude’ more of which were exhibited at the Brighton Media Centre for part of ‘Introducing…’ an exhibition showcasing local up and coming artists. To be involved with them contact Beth firstname.lastname@example.org.
