Artist's description:

From a limited edition of 10 archival photographs
Signed and numbered by artist A K Nicholas

Ava is suspended in an expanse of ultramarine. Her skyward face reveals subtle emotion while her unguarded posture conveys a sense of peace. Ambiguously erotic, the pose is strongly suggestive of both unashamed naturism and platonic pleasure.

I call this technique a false-color image, restrained to a particular subset of colors. The method is inspired by oil painting, where the artist chooses a palette and also pays homage to the classic technique of hand-colored photography. Although the colors are conceivable, they deviate from reality. The process shares other aspects with painting, being applied selectively to areas on the image. Painters will often tint shadows and highlights differently in order to give a greater illusion of depth as well as evoking an emotional response. Additionally a warm-toned subject appears to protrude from cool-toned surroundings
