Contemporary Art: Nudes On Copper @ Dacia Gallery, New York

(Drivebycuriosity) - Artists are fascinated by the human body since the begin of their profession. The oldest known nude, the "Venus of Hohle Fels", was created about 35,000 years ago (wikipedia). Erin Anderson follows this tradition, but the artist has a new idea, she paints nudes on copper plates (here an interview with the painter  huffingtonpost).

The Dacia Gallery on New York´s Lower East Side (53 Stanton Street daciagallery ) shows new paintings (oil on copper) by Anderson, the exhibition is called "The Human System"  (through April 30, 2016, here the press release anderson).

I display here my favorites from the show,  a very subjective selection as usual.
