Artists offer theories on renewed interest in nude figurative work

Paul Rybarczyk

This is the second of three stories examining a rising interest in nude figurative work on the East End.

Last week’s Great Nude Invitational Art Fair in Manhattan waved a philosophical flag that a shift was in the wind: Interest in collecting and making work inspired by the nude is on an upswing. The rising interest in the nude has also been evident on the East End, with signposts showing the way for months.

A nude exhibition, Body + Soul, was held at the Tulla Booth Gallery in Sag Harbor in February and March. Throughout the show, a photograph of a female nude torso overlooked Sag Harbor’s Main Street.

  1. Hi Paula, This is Paul, whose image is above. Nice surprise for me; just saw it today (10/6) by clicking a link from my stat counter on my web site. Especially good to see it today since I had to pick up my rejected paintings from a local regional show. ;-( I half expected they would be rejected since the juror was from one of the most contemporary art galleries here in Buffalo. Disappointing anyway, but seeing my image here made my day! News: I’m one of the featured artists in the next issue of The Art of Man magazine. I know they’re on your waiting list of websites ’cause I told them about your site. The link to the “whole article” doesn’t work. Oh, it’s, btw.

  2. Thanks for letting me know the link didn’t work guys and gals. We;re a good tag team, will try to make sure to check them all out next time. It’s always hard on the ego to get rejected, isn’t it? Poop. Good luck next time Paul.
