It's very difficult to find works that are able to materialize the fantastic conjunction of the Nude with Art. Only a few masters in the history of art were able to pass this test. Painters like Botticelli, Velazquez, Titian, and Ruben among others. The true essence of art is beauty, joined with the sensuality of the nude, often confused with vulgarity. Nudity is always disquieting, instigating and surprising. So the artist, both in painting and in sculpture, in dancing or in photography, discovers in the nude a profound link with the pureness of being. Sensuality stimulates creativity in every sense. Sensuality also evokes love, passion and the creation of man. This is why nudity moves us so profoundly.
(Ariano Cavalcanti de Paula)

This collection of images of the fine art nude represents a search for the ideal, concentrating on the fundamental physical aspects of my subjects at the same time, aware always of the light.
