Description

In this surreal art nude photograph, we see what appears to be simultaneously underwater and above the clouds, an unclad woman swimming or perhaps flying. Her legs intersect the frame, just above her knee.She propels herself into the empty space at the left third of the image. Her arms reach back, fingers outstretched, in the direction traveled. Her long, black hair flows, reinforcing the sense of motion

Blue dominates the composition, the figure standing out in warm contrast. Golden bubble accent the palette and add a sense of direction. The puffy clouds are not white and gray, but varying shades and tones of blue, emphasizing the suggestion that they, too, are submerged.

The serpentine lines of the body are juxtaposed with the random crinkling of light filtering through the surface of the water, billowing clouds, and rising bubbles. The erratic lines of the background provide little structure. Ripples run like horizontal tiger stripes near the top of the composition. Branches of light echo this pattern in front of the figure. The bottom of this surreal art nude is framed horizontally by a feathered line of clouds.
