Woman Walking Naked Through the House

My translation of a poem by Carlos Drummond de Andrade (1902-1987, Brazil), one of his country’s most beloved poets. Woman walking naked through the house,you cover me in an enormous peace.It’s not an urgent, provocative nudity.It’s a way of walking dressed with nudity,the innocence of a sister with her glass of water.

Naturist Art Double Standard

Let’s say I‘m an amateur painter. I paint a nude, show it in a gallery, and attempt to sell it. Naturists, in general, will support me. Let’s say I’m a fairly accomplished sculptor. I sculpt a nude, show it in a gallery, and attempt to sell it. Naturists, in general, will support me.  It’s the sameContinue reading “Naturist Art Double Standard”
