Ubique Commended: "Ubique" by Nicole Kelly. Judge Wendy Sharpe announced the winner and also two highly-commended and three commended art works. The artworks include sculpture, painting, ceramics, drawing, photography, installation and video — highlighting the diversity of approaches to representation of the human form by contemporary artists in Australia. Their connection to each other and to their beach setting is the true subject of the work. Desp ite the agitated surface texture of this painting; one that encapsulates the perpetual motion of the ocean setting, the work exudes a great sense of calm and intimacy. What small detail, we wonder, that has caught their attention on the shore? The painting is ultimately such a successful one as it is charged with a strong sense of the physicality of the figures and the human connection between them and their environment. You can but tickets at the door on the night, at the Gallery during opening hours, or at Eventbrite click here. The competition attracted entries, with 60 finalists selected for exhibition. Congratulations Vicki!

Come and discover our selection of nude photos and discover our gallery of female nudes. The human body has always been one of the main subjects of inspiration for artists. At the beginning the male nude was very popular in antiquity, especially among the Greeks, but today the fashion has reversed and it is the female body that is highlighted in particular in nude art photography. Nude art photography requires a certain technique to be able to take good shots, in fact as for each technique the material is essential at first. Bare art photographers generally use a digital SLR camera with a 50mm lens. Then the photographer must choose the right lighting to make perfect nude artistic photos. Often daylight outdoors is easier to control than indoors or a single light with a reflector is required to reduce contrast. It is in this context that we offer you a selection of nude photos.
Artistic nude photos make for thrilling decoration. Our nude prints embody the best in photo art! Explore our portfolio, and discover sensual nude art that combines seductive eroticism with artistic aesthetics. The nude is the human body as a work of art. One of the most controversial, yet long-standing subjects, art nudes are much more than the male and female form — they represent the spectrum of human emotion and the deep symbolic language of the body.
