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
