Being A Naked Artist by Lucy Muse

UPDATED - 3rd May

It has taken me a while to do so but I have decided to become a naked artist. Being a self confessed naked person this may come as no surprise but it has taken a lot of consideration for me to make this decision. What does it mean? Well for as long as I can remember I have created (mostly) painted imagery in a very conventional way. I felt compelled to continue my work (as an artist) but always felt that there was more but never knew what that may be. I needed a push...which is precisely what I got when I teamed up with musician and creative person Ben Thomas. Ben is a prolific producer of music and creative work. He constantly deconstructs his work and this is something that we now do as Thomas & Muse.

During this process it has become clear to me that the dissatisfaction I felt previously (as an artist) dissolves when I perform and create my artwork nude. It is a form of expression. To reveal my body, my whole self and possibly beyond to give as much as I can at any given moment. It's terrifying but exhilarating at the same time. This is how I think of myself now. I am at ease being a naked person and now a naked artist. It feels honest and real. I can't wait to continue my work to see where this leads me. In my opinion this is what art (and life) should be - challenging, exciting, unexpected (a bit scary), humbling, fragile and a lot of fun!
