  Kendall Johnson, an artist and writer who also worked for years as a therapist and trauma consultant, has written, “Bodies are fundamental to our being in the world. Bodies attract, excite, repulse, trouble, enchant, terrify, charm, sadden, infuriate, mortify us. The body comes prepackaged with an array of realities and limitations. Our bodies, our only ride through living, are wear- dated and ultimately fail and abandon us. However we may clean them up, dress them with clothing, adorn them with sparkling objects, they are simply bodies. They usher us into this world and usher us out.” The nudes in this collection speak to us—some speak easily, and some require us to ponder the figure and wonder. It’s all there if we will just see.
