Please scroll through the NSFW gallery to read my thoughts on the photographs.

I call this NSFW (Not Safe For Work) series The Moment.  I take screenshots off videos from the Internet of women at The Moment of orgasm to construct my images. They show the emotional moment as well as the physical contortions that only happen at this release.  They give a glimpse into an inner beauty we rarely see, they are not about sex, even though they are all about they exude sexiness in the most private of situations.

Since they are generally of low resolution, my manipulations of the colors give them a painterly quality.  Many are reminiscent of the great Austrian expressionists, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, Oskar Kokoschka and others.   The nudes of Egon Schiele were considered of such pornographic nature that he was jailed for a few months in 1912. These are all artists I have greatly admired for a very long time always making sure I see every painting and drawing when there are shows that cross my paths.  Some however evoke more contemporary artists like Tom Wesselmann or Anselm Kiefer.

These NSFW images freeze a moment in time which is the most private for any individual.  Nearly all the women are naked, there is rarely a partner present. They are alone in The Moment even if they are with someone.  The compositions create a space in which the viewer can stop and think in the moment about The Moment. They make you want to know more, maybe they even allow you to share the event.  They are beautiful, not just because of The Moment in time, but I hope also because of my treatment of the stills.
