From a flamingo to a pelican, an owl to a swan Gesine Marwedel paints these animals and more on nude figures. After perfectly positioning the models limbs, the soft lines and brush strokes come together to complete the shape of each creature. Each figure is then photographed as partners and individuals hold a nude, yoga-like, comparably contortionist pose to create the illusion of the natural characteristic curvatures of the animals. Against a background of a black or white negative space, the images jump out at you as if the animals were in their natural habitats.
