Art of the Human Body - Cecelia Webber captures the natural beauty of the human body

Time for us to explore our Creative Dimension today. We are thrilled to share with you the stunning work of Cecelia Webber who is a New Hampshire-born, Montréal-based artist working primarily in digital photography art and acrylic painting. She is recognized internationally for her Human Bodies Artwork, which went viral online in 2008.



In early 2012, she was the guest of honor at Infinitamente, a science and art festival coordinated by Verona University and the City of Verona, Italy, where she unveiled her Birds at the Natural History Museum of Verona.



With her work, Cecelia hopes to inspire a positive connection to nature, as well as to help people realize a positive self-image of their bodies and to have the ability to look at nudity and nakedness as comforting, vulnerable, and beautiful.



Scroll down for some incredible videos of her work which follow the gallery below featuring some of our most beloved creations from Cecelia.






 


"Cecelia Webber was born in a forest town of only 1,500 people and spent much of her childhood in fields catching orange salamanders. She was a shy, socially awkward child who enjoyed reading and spent hours searching for small fairy creatures in abandoned maple sugar huts and dilapidated stonewalls. Oddly enough, as she grew older the world grew stranger and stranger. Questions revolved about in her head, knocking down reality's framework with the force of bowling balls: Why are we made to feel so ashamed of the human body in Western culture and so much of the rest of the world? Isn't the body a beautiful, wonderful thing, deserving nothing less than to be celebrated? As her thoughts continued to evolve, Cecelia alighted upon a petal in her mind, a new-found platform from which she could quietly challenge the status quo: she created a digital image of a flower constructed entirely from photographs of the naked human body. Thus commenced her journey as a professional artist, as she continued to grow her Petal series."



 


"In her art, Cecelia explores how people understand themselves in relation to their perceived realities, creating art as a means of heightening emotional experience through manipulation of imagery and form. She works to make people aware of their link to nature and to inspire a sense of responsibility to make environmentally friendly choices. Additionally, she hopes to help people realize a positive self-image of their bodies and to have the ability to look at nudity and nakedness as comforting, vulnerable, and beautiful."
