Nude Photography as Fine Art

Roy’s presentation will discuss the definition of “fine art” and how some types of nude photography can qualify alongside traditional visual art forms such as drawing, painting and sculpture. He will give a few historical examples, along with many from his work, and will also provide a brief history of his artistic journey.

The presentation will be in English.

at Luna Sole until 6 February 2018

Elizabeth Twiss (Howells Humm) works mainly in oils and watercolours. She is a member of Arteast and the Ottawa Art Association, and frequently shows work at the Ottawa Little Theatre. Elizabeth paints with the Stanley Street Workshop, and is part of the Old Stick Studio Cooperative. She has a Certificate in Fine Arts from St. Lawrence College.

The series of paintings now hanging at Luna Sole had its genesis in life drawing courses Elizabeth took in Brockville over the years 2011 - 2014. On some occasions, the models posed with exercise balls. Most of the drawings were scant and quickly done. Later, the artist perceived in the images a strong sense of relationship between the model and the prop. The ball seemed to function as an object of desire, whatever that might be for each of us - for instance, a person, a vocation, a material item. The feeling being evoked seemed to transition with the different poses, as a personal relationship or any labour of love does over time.

Also, looking into the new year, we will be using more of the restaurants wall space. Two sections that would be suitable for larger pieces. More on that to come.
