BOXES beyond borders

The Model and the Box

Di Hammond
UK 1997

I pay homage to the naked form. In this piece the artist is absent, but her palette remains. The model is not naked but nude. To be naked is to be deprived of clothes, to be nude carries no uncomfortable overtones. She has no vulnerability. She has energy and vitality. She offers this artist stimulation and creative thought.


I thank the model, the nude…and the box.
