No other subject is so challenging, so expressive, so symbolic, so universal yet so personal, so provocative, so rich with artistic potential, as is the bare human body. Indeed, art authority Kenneth Clark goes so far to say “the nude is not a subject of art, but a form of art.”
The word “present” has several distinct meanings: to offer; to be in attendance; in the current time; a gift.
It is my pleasure to share the gallery with eight artist colleagues who, through their own distinctive vision and craft, have taken up the challenge of incorporating the nude into their respective bodies of work - nine artists present the nude. ~ Thomas Stevens
