Senior Scholars Paper (Open Access)
Colby College. Art Dept.
The nude and its setting can reflect man's relationship to the environment. Do artists want control, especially over the environment, as Matisse says? How will this technological control cause environmental changes that will change the genetic makeup and evolution of man himself? A figure should become part of its environment without removal or dominance from the setting for the most unified results in art. Man should seek this unity of self and environment and knowledge. I try to with art and hope my work will express this intent.
