The Beginning is Near
The Beginning Is Near, Todd Monaghan, 2012, 56 W x 68 H x 1.5 in
Painting: Gesso, Acrylic, body paint on Canvas.
This work was painted during a live Nude Painting party at the Gallery Bar on the Lower Eastside. It is the second in a series of 5 works from 5 different events. The Nude Painting party series grew out of a performance piece show I did at the Jonathan Shorr Gallery with fellow artist and collaborators Gregory Illich and Michael Ricardo Andreev. The series ended abruptly when I cut the bottom of my foot while working barefoot and had to go to the emergency room for 5 stitches. I never saw that piece, the last piece of the series again.
