Nudes Moving


Nudes Moving is a 2012 show at Eleven Fine Art in which Gerry Fox brings timeless nude studies by Egon Schiele and Auguste Rodin to life in digital video. These slow moving “paintings” effuse sensuality as the figures seamlessly move in and out of moments of sheer eroticism and soft tenderness. The works are charged with a palpable sense of intimacy and intensity, hypnotising the viewer with each alluring movement. Shot in fluid slow motion, each is digitally manipulated to replicate the soft strokes, pencil edges and painterliness of the originals but inevitably also take on a life of their own, separate and different but similarly infused with emotion and desire.
