Female Nudes

/Female Nudes

Matisse said, “Seek the strongest color effect possible. .. the content is of no importance.”

Even so, the main content of his paintings was very often a female nude. For him, a nude seems to provide a nice excuse to put colours here or there. If his nudes really were of no importance, he could have painted trees or horses or anything else. No, I think he knew his colourful paintings needed a human element. We see ourselves in painted figures and share their surrounds for an instant.

Personally, the nudes I paint represent the SELF… MYself, in the moment and perhaps a universal female self to the viewer. I paint female nudes to convey how I feel….about music, art… matters of the heart. Like a visual diary, I lay my life bare…
