“Pleasure in the Pathless Woods”
Photographs of Nudes in Nature by Michael Lynch
May 15th-June 14th
“Nature gives to every time and season some beauties of its own”
Mike Lynch is a photographer. At the outset of his artist journey, he was a painter sitting in front of an easel and canvas. After a while, he started using a camera to photograph his subjects for his paintings. The camera was a revelation. He felt it freed him. Freedom to escape from behind his easel and roam, freedom to capture instantly whatever caught his eye.
So how does an artist blend his love for roaming in nature and a talented eye for portraits and landscapes?
The series that Mike Lynch is presenting at the YSAC Gallery is his study of the feminine form in Nature. That’s maybe a bit coy–it’s nudes, nudes in nature.
In Mike’s words: “When you first look over the show you will think that it is simply nudes in nature. It is that, but it is also a study of texture, form, shape, and color. The photos explore the idea of the goddess and the nude. The images illustrate emotions. They capture the human female form in all four seasons. The images blend together landscape photography and fine art. “
Please join us at the Opening Reception on Friday, May 15 from 6 – 9 p.m. There will be an artist talk at 7 p.m. Mike says, “There are always unforeseen issues that arise when shooting outdoors like weather, hikers and wild animals.” Mike is inviting some of the models to join him in talking about their experiences in creating this series. Refreshments will be served.
