This one-of-a-kind photograph has been sold. This artwork was made on commission for a specific collector. Art collectors who buy original fine art often want something unique.

Unlike my limited editions, commissioned artwork are often one-of-a-kind. These art prints are marked “1/1” to indicate they are the only one printed. The editioning is in the lower-left margin, just as in an edition of multiples. They are signed and dated in my normal fashion.

As always, when you buy original fine art from me, commissions will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

The goal of this nude photograph was to explore the camouflaging effect when the body shape is overpowered by high contrast shadow patterns. The edge of the body emerges slightly from the shadows to lead the viewer into the subject.

To produce this photograph, I drew upon my traditional background in painting and drawing. Elements of line, form, and value were the building blocks. Dark values dominate a diagonal through the frame. Additionally, dark values frame the edges of the composition.
