Reclining Woman- ‘Poetica’ Blue Knob Gallery

One of my favourite Nudes, a pastel on black paper is on exhibition at Blue Knob Gallery near Nimbin, NSW hinterland. The poem I chose for this drawing is one by Stevie Tate –

How fruitful, the rounded limbs of the reclining nude. 

Soft contours long to be caressed by the eye

In all feminine holds robust strength

Fragility insults the perception of woman.

In this form, sensual solidity transfuses with sweetened slopes of eb and flow. 

Womb throbs under curved florescent reflections, transcribing life’s intriguing form

Breasts propped, from where warm heart of desire beats fervently 

On a proud pedestal 

Thighs rest, unified with the gravity of Mother Earth Blue Knob Gallery link
