Xavier Encinas, Psalm

Styled by Victoire Simonney, Psalm is an investigation of the relationship between the camera and the viewer through the concept of “Reclining Nudes”.


In painting, the subject of a nude female reclining on a couch or bed was one of the traditionally accepted subjects. It was a way for the artist to study the human form and demonstrate an ability to communicate subtle aspects of a person's personality, status, or life through a respected form of portraiture.
