The seductive images of Danielle Orchard’s nudes are not necessary connected with sexuality. Just like Matisse, who once famously said that “My curves are not crazy”, Orchard’s fragmented shapes inhabit multi-angled viewpoints and employ a similarly joyful Fauve color palette. Her everyday tableaus are carefree snapshots of modern women rendered in bold color combinations who, like in real life, present different views in the same picture plane. The young Brooklyn-based artist expertly plays with light and shadow, brilliantly manipulates the spatial tension of subject and the picture plane and is able to construct her female subjects through the clever use of color. At Jack Hanley through March 11.
