About

From an edition of 3 archival photographs Signed and numbered by artist A K Nicholas Image size: 32×48 inches, 81×122 cm Paper size: 34×50 inches, 86×127 cm This manipulated digital artwork is light painting photography depicting several nudes. Ethereal specters rise up like flames, evoking memories of storytelling around a campfire. Seven glowing figures swirl around a point of focus, crouching, dancing, swaying, and crawling. Gleaming faces top some of the golden bodies; others are faceless. Arcs of motion obscure details in the darkness. The flamelike swirls evoke the feeling of motion, the passage of time, and warmth emitting from the inky night. Defined features intermix with hazy curves as golden tones give way to chilly purples. The color palette is mostly these two tones, with an occasional accent of ruby red or drab gray. An array of patterns and shapes can be imagined in the randomness. This composition provides endless opportunities to explore the blurring of limbs, torsos, faces, and hair with a mixture of pleasant and startling results. A faint grainy texture anchors the figures to solid ground in front of the indistinct nocturnal backdrop. The lines between tiles give the viewer a sense of scale to these otherwise isolated figures. The light painting origins of this image allow for experimentation and examination that continues with the viewer. The process is a form of time-lapse photography, where in this case, the subjects participate by dancing while holding light sources. In effect, they paint themselves with light during the course of a few seconds. An array of patterns and shapes can be imagined in the randomness. This composition provides endless opportunities to explore the blurring of limbs, torsos, faces, and hair with a mixture of pleasant and startling results.

An unapologetic celebration of the female form, these images invite the viewer to explore a dreamlike world. Photography is simply a starting point on this journey to an unknown destination. His unorthodox aesthetic blends sensual imagery with a painterly style of manipulated colors.
