From a series of quiet, yet alluring pictures of his model Liza, this picture is at once restrained and erotic. Solemn colors make this work saturated and unusual, the vertical placement of the figure stunning and graphic. The model's seductive pull is offset by a sense of volume. Koszlovskiy's architectural composition make this a stand out portrait of the beauty of the feminine form.
About the Artist
Known for his exquisite vision of the erotic feminine form, self-taught Russian photographer Arkadiy Kozlovskiy (b. 1964, Germany − d. 2014, Russia) came to his art late in life. Nevertheless, within a short span of merely three years he would become highly regarded, and sought after for his enchanting portraits of desire, embodied in pictures of sumptuously striking nudes.
