fantastic female forms - Natasha Law

Yellow with Green Stars on Pink 2008 - Gloss Paint on Aluminum 49 in X 49 in
Simple lines, bold colors and attention to the female form first drew me to Law's prints. I stumbled upon them when perusing Elevn Fine Art (, which is a fantastic site. What is impressive to me is her use of empty space and color to highlight the human form. Her use of lines and mixed media allow the viewer's eyes to organically follow the painting, drawing their eyes to the exact place they need to be.

Her process if a unique one in which she works off photographs of her sitters and uses simply glossy household paint and aluminum nerderlines. Each paining posses an erotic undertone and excudes a strong sexual femininity.
London born, Natasha is the sister of Jude Law. Initially well known through her collaboration with the Frost/French label designing everything from prints to showsets.

The pieces are empowering, highlighting a plethora of shapes. She draws attention to the female form from what is an obvious high fashion and feminine perspective
