"Art arises when the secret vision of the artist and the manifestation of nature agree to find new shapes." - Kahlil Gibran [1883-1931]

 

This photographic figure study pictorial began as a concept of talented nude international female figure model, Melanie Lemay, interacting with dark lava rock on a tropical island shoreline. The poses in these photographic artworks were influenced by historic paintings set in the studio or other interior ambience. A reclining nude model is far more comfortable on a soft padded sofa than posing on unyielding jagged lava rock.

In the spirit of reclining and seated nudes by master painters, these traditional artworks from 1558 through 1978 influenced this pictorial exhibition: Titian 1558 Danae, Rembrant 1654 Bathsheba at Her Bath, Delacroix 1825 Female Nude Reclining on a Divan,
Manet 1878 Woman in a Bathtub, Gauguin 1897 Nevermore, Toulouse-Lautrec 1897 Reclining Nude, Boldini 1911 Reclining Nude,
Schiele 1914 Wally Neuzil, Parrish 1926 Stars, Wyeth 1978 Overflow. Picasso 1933 Minotaure, and Matisse 1940 Pink Nude.

"It is a challenging collaboration for both photographer and model to take the nude figure out of the comfortable confines of the studio and infuse it into the textured wilds of nature and emerge with intriguing works of art," Allio said. "Melanie Lemay is a talented life model who repeatedly melds her natural body into rugged scenes with beauty, poise, and grace to produce stunning nude figure artworks. She has a rare and specialized skill for understanding shape and projecting her natural female body as an exciting artform."
