EMBRACE EVERYTHING COZY & SPLENDED
Nude art has been significant since the Ancient Greek era, a time where being naked was considered a heroic state but presented idealised and unrealistic expectations of the perfect form — a conversation that has circulated throughout the course of history and is still widely discussed today.
The tendency to sexualise the female form continued throughout the 20th century, but in 1970 painter Lucian Freud decided to approach the nude in a new way, painting the human form in its most natural state with complete disregard for idealisation and sexualisation (hoorah). This approach influenced artists across the world and now we see nude art that has broken down all aesthetic barriers.
Although it will always be art that focuses on the unclothed human form, the way this is created from concept to canvas presents a plethora of other meanings that we can gladly celebrate.

"Selfies have changed aspects of social interaction, body language, self-awareness,
privacy, and humor, altering temporality, irony, and public behavior. It’s become a
new visual genre—a type of self-portraiture formally distinct from all others in history.
Selfies have their own structural autonomy. This is a very big deal for art." Jerry Saltz
