Buy black and white nudes directly from the artist’s studio. In this limited edition archival photograph, two figures lay in the tidal saltgrass and pluff mud. Morning sun casts crisp shadows in the small clearing. Strands of cordgrass interrupt the lines of their bodies, obscuring their contours. This unconventional approach places out of focus strands of grass directly in front of the figures, in the center of the composition.

The vegetation frames the two nude figures in a pattern of dark grays. The blades are tilted at a nearly uniform diagonal. The pattern is punctuated by sporadic bright reeds. Warm tones emphasize the organic motif of this monochrome nude photograph.

The two nude figures recline in opposite directions. Their bodies glow brightly in the dark toned surroundings. Their hips line up, each others feet aligned with the other’s shoulders. Their bodies are patterned with the splatter of dark, rich mud. Both of their gazes are cast downward, mentally absorbed in their immediate moment and location.

Each figure has one knee bent and one leg straight. One points her toes. Their demeanors are relaxed.
