Ducati Official Art presents "Desmo" a photographic art collection by Elizabeth Raab

We've gotten word from Ducati about some unique photographs from the Ducati Official Fine Art Collection.  If you like motorcycles - which I know you do - and you like beautiful women, well this art could something you might appreciate.

It's not entirely safe for work (hey, it's Art!) but do check out the links within this post.

Full details:

An exploration of the aesthetical relationship between the female body and the mechanical body of iconic Ducati bikes.

Perfect organisms which become the extension of one another. A fine art edition available exclusively on: www.ducatiart.com.

About the collection

The “Desmo” collection presents sixteen unique photographs in which the artist has approached and juxtaposed the abstract qualities of the organic and mechanical forms, highlighting both the complexity in design and the emotion of iconic Ducati motorcycles.

The shots explore the multiple relationships between the designed and the natural.

The lines of the mechanical body reflecting the lines of the organic form it was designed after. The unique color palette of the motorcycle extends from the framework to the features of the model. The model is in an extension of the bike herself.

About the artist

Elizabeth Raab (b. 1981) is a photographic artist specializing in automotive and creative portraiture imagery. Her images often contain a visually strong emotional sensuality that crosses the boundary between her subjects and objects. Uniquely vivid color palettes and a detached sense of forlorn beauty and intrigued silence permeate most of Elizabeth’s scenes, as realism and objectivity are commonly set aside. Elizabeth’s career in the arts started with her move to Rome, Italy in 1999 where she lived for two years working in creative portraiture before returning to her native North West in 2001.

Her work has been featured in exhibitions and many areas of publication in the US and Italy. Features include a range from the Seattle Art Museum, published works of David Lynch, to Joseph Kosuth’s “Perloined.”

She has recently been most noted for her work in conjunction with Ducati motorcycles and now resides in Brooklyn, New York with her husband and their two children.

The Editions

The artworks from the “Desmo” Collection are reproduced exclusively in numbered editions. Each artwork is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and limited edition, guaranteeing its collector value.

They are available exclusively on www.ducatiart.com.
