Disrobed III highlights the living figure both as a primary material and as a viable means of communication within art. Clothed, naked, scarred, or freckled, the human body has provided a critical terrain within all media. Cultures continue frequent debates over how anatomies should or should not be expressed with an unending fervor. It is paradoxical that this universal physique, quoted for its canonical beauty by the Greeks and Romans, quickly become a hotbed of controversy. Gawky and goose-pimpled at times, the baring of skin elicits a rash of responses, especially where sexuality, gender, and nakedness commingle. To strip these realities from the body is a tragic denial of our shared humanity. It is the purpose of Disrobed3 to challenge these limitations and to encourage a vital discourse about the exposed human form.
