The Naked Truth
by Hans Wendland
About the Book
Never before in have I mixed my paintings with digital photography, in this book I make that jump. With this work I blended my water-colours with B&W nudes, making one flow into the other. I wanted to create the illusion that one doesn't stop where the other starts, where the audience is torn between seeing the trees and looking at the entire forest. Nothing is as provocative as a nude, and nothing is more natural than woods in a forest.

I was born in Paris, which makes me French. I grew up in a family of painters, sculptors and art merchants. In France and Italy, I studied under the artists Gérard Ambroselli, and Antonietta Tuti where I received strong influences in impressionism and abstractionism. I was educated in Italy, France, England and finally in the United States where I lived for over twenty years. I have shown my work in the United States, South America and in Europe. For the past fifteen years in Switzerland, and now back in the United States, I have lived parallel lives, one focused on high-tech and the other focused on art, and until very recently never mixing the two. In this world of right-brain and left-brain I have found the stimulus for creating my paintings and my photographs. All of my work is based on abstract shapes and emotions I see and feel. Nature is my biggest driver.
