Absorbed in her bucolic surroundings and late afternoon sunlight, Hope is captured in vivid tones of yellow and green. A gentle vignette of softly focused vegetation frames this landscape nude. Sometimes a serene location lies just a stone’s throw from the road. The sounds of civilization fading in the distance, it felt like stepping through a portal to a different planet, full of lush yellow flowering plants waiting to be explored. A perfect sunset sauntered through the organic inhabitants of this space, swallowed by the wild, in a perpetual cycle of blossoming and decaying.
The image portrays a spontaneous moment that seems at once fleeting and timeless. This seems a moment that has vanished in time. Although, like a play on a stage, it’s also an illusion of something that never occurred. This composition celebrates a sense of discovery by mixing a lush scene with the body in an exploration of light, color, and movement. This fictional world draws the view into the landscape nude by presenting a reality that is convincingly like our own, only more appealing. In this image we live forever in this frozen moment, a feeling of perfect timing, a concept that exists only in our minds.
