A caramel-hued dancer bounds effortlessly across an industrial floor where concrete seems to give way to liquid form under her intensity. The smooth flowing lines of the warm figure stand out from the cold, dark angles of the environment. Her vitality defies the disarray of the dystopian surroundings.
From my Industrial Nudes theme. This collection of images sets the nude form against unnatural environments of concrete, chrome, mechanization, and grit. The series contemplates the contrast between the mechanical and the organic, the clean and the gritty. Even the strongest human body is slight and delicate when compared to the rigid, bulky elements of the industrial backdrops. It is, at its base, a commentary that compares an idealized “human as an animal” to humanity’s perpetual expansion into nature. This theme celebrates beauty and achievement by showcasing icons of mechanization in conjunction with the splendor of the human form.
