The Naked Landscape interplays the vigour and vitality of nine mature-aged Queensland College of Art, Griffith University students with the passion of a younger artist to conceptualise what ‘nakedness’ and ‘landscape’ represent when individually visualised. The addition of the younger artist introduces an intergenerational counterpoint offering commonalities and differences that demonstrate shared language and considerations.
Each artwork uniquely reclaims the body’s landscape, self-identity and nakedness beyond the erotic gaze to reconnect with fundamental humanity.
