Emily Stedman - Watercolor Artist
My new show of nude watercolors, Life Undressed, opens at the NOHO/M55 Gallery on January 27, 2015. Each painting is accompanied by a mythical, romantic, or emotional story, designed to give the viewer an immediate emotional connection.


The nudes in Life Undressed are woven together with tales relating to the subject’s everyday experiences, dilemmas and hardships. I feel that storytelling is a part of life, intrinsic to most cultures and helps people make sense of the world. While the nude transcends time, the telling of stories too is as basic to human beings as eating. Maybe more so, since while food allows us to live, stories are what make our lives worth living.

The opening reception for Life Undressed is on Thursday, Jan 29th from 5-8 PM. RSVP is requested but not required.
