Nudes. Art. Nature. - Hasted Hunt Kraeutler Gallery presents Jeff Bark's series Lucifer Falls

Waterfalls are daunting and powerful. Mother nature unleashes her cascading might, plunging down in gigantic streams and composes dreamlike scenes made from playing with colours, rocks and the wild.

In ‘Lucifer Falls’, Jeff Bark combines the surrounding's rough beauty with a similar approach to nudes. After all, his view on things is unlike traditional landscape photography.

Sometimes, the bodies appear to be one with nature and sometimes like pale, deserted ghosts.

The artist Jeff Barks treads unusual paths. Simply put, he likes it gloomy and naked. And while this may be an accurate description, it takes away some of the magic, which is eminent in all the works, as well as an untold story under the surface.

Jeff Bark was born in 1963 in Duluth, Minnesota and studied at the Brooks Institute in California. He rose to fame with his nudes, which resemble the style of old Dutch paintings.

The Hasted Hunt Kraeutler Gallery will be showing the large format photographs until 16 October 2010.
