Art Description

Drawing: Paint, Color, New Media, Photo and Manipulated on Paper, Canvas and Other.

Impressionist painting style rendering of original photograph of nude woman body painted purple, and posed on a bed of manually positioned grape leaves.

This body painting artwork expresses several levels of creative work.

First, the concept of a "human grape" required the gathering of real grape leaves in the fall and manually distributing them for an optimal visual effect.

Next, the full body painting of a nude female model, using purple acrylic body paint.

And then, the posing of the painted model on the grape leaves - without disturbing the leaf arrangement.

Lighting was then established at various levels to bump he contrast of the individual grape leaves and highlight the purple human canvas appropriately.

The photograph taken of this posed subject, was then manually and digitally transformed into a softer painting style.

While the model in this artwork is female, there is an androgynous style which makes this piece more versatile and multi-gender friendly.
