About The Artwork

I took this self portrait underwater at a remote hot springs in Colorado. Water is a primary component of our planet. The red hue is intended to reference the new beginning we are experiencing as a planet, the formation of a new era, the age of aquarius. We must protect and honor our sacred waters and mother earth. The process of getting naked in nature, is a therapeutic experience for me. I print on metal because it is a durable medium that upholds the true aesthetic of the digital image. I hope that this image invites the mind of the viewer to transcend the bounds of reality. It is both freeing and natural to be naked, and I hope that by embracing this visual, physical state, others may see the intrinsic beauty of the body, especially in connection to mother earth, and thereby feel inspired to free themselves too. It is more important than ever before that we connect with and respect our natural world, and work to care for it as we care for ourselves.

Elsa Marie Keefe is an artist who explores body positivity through photography, mixed media collage, and book-making. Her complete immersion into the nudist lifestyle has shaped her creative practice. She integrates the figure into nature to comment on significant issues such as sexuality, societal oppression, spirituality, and the sublime. The large-scale pieces are rich in texture and vulnerability. By incorporating natural elements back into the artwork, such as bones, flora, crystals, and dirt, her process emphasizes the cyclical nature of our time here on Earth. Her work has been exhibited nationally and across the boroughs of New York City, including The Blue Gallery, New York; The Invisible Dog Art Center, Brooklyn; Ziome, Miami; and Ophelia’s in Denver, Colorado. She has been featured at Miami Basel, The Other Art Fair, SOHO House, and The Southampton History Museum. Recent interviews with the artist were broadcasted on TNT Radio and available to read on Northshore Magazine and Saatchi Art Blog. The three books published by Elsa are titled Born Wild, Delirium, and Salvation. Blending her commercial and personal fine art practices, Elsa partners with people and organizations to promote healthy naturist lifestyles. She facilitates women’s healing circles and collaborative photographic experiences alongside her art. Elsa Marie Keefe is based between Boston and the Hudson Valley of New York State and is available for conversation, collaboration, and commissions. Please contact the artist at
