Naked Sculpture

About

Jonathan Cooper Park Walk Gallery is pleased to announce ‘Naked Sculpture,' a new series of photographs by acclaimed South African based, English photographer Marc Stanes. As official photographer to the Mandela Rhodes Foundation, Stanes also continues to record the life of Nelson Mandela. ‘I have always explored details from nature; flowers, rocks, and abstract compositions. In all of these I have tried to explore the sculpture of nature as I see it, whether beautiful or not.' (Marc Stanes 2010) In his new exhibition, Stanes explores the landscape of the human figure with a series of single and group nudes of the male and female form. The ‘abstract and organic nature' of the body continues to fascinate the artist in the same way as flowers have done before. Drawing on influences from Italian Renaissance, early Byzantine and Roman Sculptural forms, Stanes' representations highlight both the strength and vulnerability of the human figure.
