Nude or Naked?

After taking an art history course debating the difference between 'nude' and 'naked' in artwork, I began a project drawing thermal images of the human body. This series invokes the controversial question: "Nude or naked?" Using a fun and vibrant color palette, I created digital images of friends/peers who were willing to trust and offer me a piece of themselves. This project was not only an offering to the answer of an infamous question but was also an empowerment and ownership of bodies for the women involved.
