Figure Study 004: Cassia Berger x Jessamyne Rose

 

For Figure Study 004 Bay Area photographer Cassia Berger was joined by Monterey based figure painter Noelle Coetzee, who was looking for unique images highlighting the landscapes of her home to use as reference images for her paintings. Coetzee lead the photographer along the frigid shore and wood of California, posing a model in the nooks and beaches of Monterey. The model, Jessamyne Rose, is a quintessential Mucha girl. Her beauty is classic. Timeless. A figure that is both youthful and mature. In this series, Ms. Rose created her own space under the pine trees and the crisp shore of the Pacific Ocean.

Keith Haring’s statement, ‘The best reason to paint is that there is no reason to paint,’ can act as inspiration or deterrent, depending on the perspective of the listener. The artist that picks up a paintbrush out of duty to self and to no other greater purpose is in line with Haring’s sentiment. Pick up a brush or pen, camera, clay, or crayon, and create. Put something in the world that wasn’t there before. Perhaps this set of photos could be your reference material, or not. You do you.

All of the photos from the shoot are present. For a single moment multiple photos were taken, each at a different mark of a gesture. Rather than limit the set of images meant for artists to work from, all are presented.

 

 


The best reason to paint is that there is no reason to paint.’

 

– Keith Haring
