Nude Painting – finding one’s Art Mojo again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Art Mojo had been gone for some weeks. No, probably months. It comes and goes. Well, painting mojo anyway. I didn’t know how to get out of it. So for some unknown reason I contemplated having a go at setting up a canvas and painting naked. I have done life modelling many times before in the past, for art classes like Tafe. And I remembered how exhilarating it was, relaxing and contemplative. To say that may sound cliche, but is true to many who have a go at it. And it worked again today, even without a room full of artists. Clothes must inhibit in many ways. They protect us, but at the same time, inhibit us.

 

I was going to do more to this painting. This was only the start. But no, my partner said Don’t do any more. It is done. She was right. It just came out, and just was. I love it. Maybe done in 20 seconds. I am calling it Red Nude.

PHOTOSYNTHESIS – Photo-art – copyright Dennis Mealor – from the Vault – Model, Deb

 

One of my all time favourite  photos in my archive files.

The setting was the Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery Artist-in-Residence apartment. I lived there for 6 weeks after the 2013 Bundaberg flood swamped my house. The gallery offered me the apartment until my place was fixed. And rent free, so good of them. Was a bitter-sweet time, having my house inundated and most of my goods and chattels destroyed. Yet, a memorable time at the apartment, right in the CBD, and on the first floor above one of the main streets. Then there were great times like this, a photo shoot with Deb. Obvious I guess, the plant was not real, which maybe sums up the feeling back then. After that flood, nothing seemed real for some time.
