McGarren Flack spent many hours and multiple painting sessions painstakingly working out the intricate details of this glowing nude. He painted in delicate layers perfecting the incredible lighting on the skin. "I created this piece focusing on the subtle and intricate information found around the ribs," says McGarren. "I feel like the colors and dynamic pose express the support ribs address on a daily basis." The piece pays homage to classic proportions and poses, while adding a contemporary seductive element.

Utah-based artist McGarren Flack captures everyday moments of human vulnerability through painterly realism. His career as a paramedic brings him face-to-face with people at their most helpless moments, which inspired him to contemplate the nature of being vulnerable. Whether sitting alone in a cafe or unknowingly dropping a possession on the street, the human condition is always subject to powerlessness. “It is important for me to share these scenes because I believe it will help the viewer connect to humanity,” says McGarren. “There is no escaping the feeling of vulnerability; it is blind to skin color, social status, and age.”
