Rotella Gallery Presents: Human Canvas by Art Wolfe

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - October 14, 2015) - The Rotella Gallery invites appreciators and collectors of Fine Art Photography to join us for the exhibition of internationally renowned photographer, Art Wolfe and his "Human Canvas." The highly collectable Human Canvas series is a culmination of Wolfe's extensive background in painting and photography. Blending these two disciplines manifest as an intriguingly unique showcase of Art's talents and insight, which challenges our perception and concept of nude photography.

The Rotella Gallery will be hosting an opening reception for the exhibit on November 5th, 2015 from 6-9:00pm, with a meet and greet alongside artist, Art Wolfe.

Human Canvas will run from November 5th - December 3rd, 2015. The location of the exhibit and opening reception will be held at the Rotella Gallery, 468 West Broadway, New York, NY.

The exhibit is open to the public. We do ask however, that you please RSVP for the reception by emailing rsvp@rotellagallery.com.

About Human Canvas

"At first glance, one would see this new body of work as starkly different from any I have done in the past. But in fact, this is a natural evolution of my work and interests. These works are created with the objective toward theatrical as opposed to erotic. Nevertheless, many of the landscapes and human forms are inescapably sensual in nature. Having traveled often over the past 30 years to remote cultures, nudity is more the norm than not. One could say traditional and religious teachings have impressed upon our culture that the human nude form be viewed somewhat differently. I value challenging the perception of these concepts."

-Art Wolfe, Human Canvas
