Nudes

Approach the Shore

Approach the Shore

Oil on canvas (2011)

The last of the group of nude paintings based upon 15 min life drawings. I love Wagner and pretentious as it is, I know, I wanted to name this after the haunting refrain at the start of his Tannhauser. “Naht euch dem Strande” they call – approach the shore – their beauty and nonchalance in counterpoint to the death and destruction that follows.
