Johnny Naked Featured in Solo Exhibition Opens at Los Angeles Center For Digital Art January 9, 2014 Photography and Review by GInger Van Hook

Johnny Naked celebrates the opening of his latest exhibition in DownTown Los Angeles with his supporters and friends.

There is a  dreamlike quality to the photographs exhibited by Johnny Naked
 in his exhibition titled  "Digital Taoism". Creating works revealing and honoring the human figure, natural in all its elegant beauty, Johnny Naked takes a serious approach to the traditional nude and elevates the quality of naked photography with all the tools available in the digital realm
 to enhance the viewer's intimate experience with the artwork.
 Johnny Naked has set his subjects, all attractive models from a cross section of society, in a juxtaposition with nature in the western landscape of the Los Angeles skyline with all the imminent powers of mother nature present in the ominous clouds, the colors ablaze with sunsets and sunrises, rock formations of the rugged California desert, tumbleweeds, boulders and cityscapes in the distance. In Johnny Naked's photographs, mounted on canvas, the human form becomes part of that landscape with a poise and playfulness entertaining the eye and painting the of pictures of sensuality, fear, longing and joy across windblown valleys and hilltops above a bustling urban metropolis below.
