An attractive nude in a bedroom environment is an often contemplated image. Enhance the scene with sleek silk sheets or rumpled bed linen, a lady or man in repose and a sense of sensuality is immediately conveyed.
Now consider the mood lighting and subtle impact it can have on a bedroom scene such as the one above. Soft, side table illumination which mutes the otherwise stronger colours plays its part in setting the seductive scene and all the elements combine and subliminally implant a growing sense of anticipation. Now revisit the curvaceous form. Whether male or female, the viewer gains an appreciation of the line and lay of the body presented to them in unique ways encouraging multiple interpretations.
Walking quietly into a certain space at a certain time will expose the visitor to not just one of these scenes, but dozens. How can this be?
Manyung Gallery Mt Eliza is featuring the nude form this February. Tastefully painted and sculpted by many of Australia’s best contemporary artists, visitors will view subtle images in charcoal, pastel, oil and bronze which reflect the many celebrations of the human body in which our selves exist.
The VIEW…. come sleep with me exhibition opens at 6pm on Friday February 12 and runs through Valentine’s Day to the end of the month. Consider visiting and adding a classic artwork to your boudoir! Participating artists include; Juli Hutchings, Wendy Arnold, Emma Middleton, Andrew Bartosz, Wendy Ng and Feyona Van Stom.
Manyung Gallery Mt Eliza is at 1408 Nepean Highway Mt Eliza .
