Bowieart has just announced this year's Take Home A Nude auction! This famous event "is an auction with a difference : alluring, provocative and intriguing, all works in the auction take the nude as its subject matter and all proceeds go to a great cause, The New York Academy of Arts."
"There is a great line-up of artists including Eric Fischl, Sam Taylor-Wood, Jeff Koons, John Currin, Sol LeWitt and Todd Oldham as well as many others. David Bowie is contributing again this year and has donated three prints produced specially for the auction."
"Pictured here is one of the prints, there are three variations on the print and each set in is an edition of only five. In this specially created print David has taken images of nudes both male and female, both are idealised though one is a fetishised drawing the other a realistic photograph, the two images have been entangled making viewing the original nudes problematic. How we normally view such images is brought into question."
You may remember David's contribution to Take Home A Nude last year - that beautiful triptych of Iman when she was expecting Alex. Whoever made the highest bid then has my green-eyed envy. The image above and the description of this year's contributions also make my heart beat faster. Can't wait to hear more!
