Jorgie surveys the Charlotte, North Carolina horizon in this contemporary art nude. She poses against the skyline, idyllically silhouetted by the sun setting over the distant buildings. The body’s caramel hue stands out against the blue-grays of the sky and ground and bits of drying vegetation.

Construction and decay can each look like chaos, sometimes making it difficult to distinguish the two. What first appears to be a wasteland of an urban environment is actually a construction site and a rebirth story. The site depicted here is a future of a light rail system. The current state of broken concrete and rebar will give way to revitalization. The three main characters in this composition are the flat construction zone, the rising buildings, and the close figure.

Using buildings in conjunction with the female form offers a number of comparisons. A general comparison is one of line. The rigid, angular lines of the buildings contrast with the fluid curves of the body. Another consideration is scale. In this image, buildings diminish in the distance. Compare this to a composition of a statuesque nude woman with nearby buildings towering over her.

This contemporary art nude limited edition photograph is sold out. No more will be created. This artwork is with collectors in Ottawa, San Francisco, Michigan, Massachusetts, Missouri, New York, and the United Kingdom.
