Interview by Carol Lowrey

Published in conjunction with the Marcuse Pfeifer Gallery, on the occasion of Michael Torosian's first one-man exhibition in New York City.

In her introductory essay, Shirley J. Madill, Curator of Contemporary Art and Photography at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, explores the lineage of the nude in art, the transformation of perceptions of women, and Torosian's distinctive contribution as he works to define a new form. The essay is complemented by an interview with the artist conducted by New York-based art historian Carol Lowrey.
