"Art is never chaste. It ought to be forbidden to ignorant innocents, never allowed into contact with those not sufficiently prepared. Yes, art is dangerous. Where it is chaste, it is not art."
-- Pablo Picasso

With the blanket online clamp-down on all forms of nudity, even artistic nudity, continuing apace as surveillance capitalism improves its AI screening programs, and with recent history highlighting the dangers of unlimited free speech, the issues of censorship and surveillance are in the forefront of many discussions at the moment. Cultural attitudes to free speech vary widely around the world. Nudity in art is controversial. The starting set of collections play with the themes that have bedevilled the subject for nearly two thousand years.

The galleries are here [NSFW].

They wondered why the fruit had been hidden

"The body always expresses the spirit whose envelope it is. And for him who can see, the nude offers the richest meaning."
-- Auguste Rodin

Western art has been dealing with the human figure and the rich, complicated symbolism of the figurative nude for over three thousand years. But it has become increasingly difficult to find a safe haven for this type of art, especially if it features the photographed nude. The fine art nude in art - and particularly in photography - is adrift and homeless. It's generally misunderstood too, being either categorised as pornography or dismissed as unfashionable. It's being chased out of the fashion world. Online, it is virtually impossible to find a venue that concentrates solely on the art nude. Social media and art hosting sites are prohibiting any form of nudity, even if it has artistic merit.

This art gallery is a way of redressing the imbalance. Now you can view the works as they were intended it to be seen. Uncensored. Free.

New galleries will be added regularly.
