As the Fahrenheit rises, layers of clothes come off and nothing says summer like bare-naked flesh. Flowers Gallery on 20th Street bared it all with the recent group photography show, Under My Skin – Nudes in Contemporary Photography, which opened last June 20th and curated by Mona Kuhn. AF wandered into a well-packed and paced reception as everyone took the time to let it sink in deep under their skin with the provocative and sensational oeuvres.

 Photographers and their work featured in the show are: Adou, Jeff Bark, Polly Borland, Christopher Bucklow (which AF reviewed earlier this year at Danzinger Gallery), Ana Casas Broda, David Dawson, Maciek Jasik, Sarah Anne Johnson, Kim Joon, Nadav Kander, Bear Kirkpatrick, Mona Kuhn, Justin Kurland, Christopher Kutner, Deana Lawson, Glen Luchford, Malerie Marder, Geir Moseid, Mariah Robertson, Jenny Saville, Collier Schorr, Alec Soth, Bill Sullivan, Esther Teichmann, Spencer Tunick and Shen Wei.

The survey serves as a mirror of how we see the naked form in fine art. AF came equipped with the stark naked lens of Max Noy and video by Jamie Martinez to expose art in New York that runs skin deep and beyond. Time to bare it and show that beautiful naked skin because underneath it all ART courses through our veins or seeps out of our pores.
