About the Art
What the artist saysThrough abstraction and a reimagining of the everyday, this piece invites the viewer to reinterpret the world around them in fresh, inspired and unfamiliar ways.
Why we like itFigurative yet abstract, explicit yet discreet, Nude II is just the right amount of suggestive. Safransky’s gestural style and simple color palette allow us to see the effort behind her work.
Where we hang itSolo on a smaller wall, so you can get up close and personal with her!
