"Nude" isn't just the state of nakedness, it's the name of a color — you've seen it on the side of the pinkish "flesh" crayon and on packages of women's hosiery. The artist and writer damali ayo decided to create a series of paintings based on a different tone of nude — her own, un-pink skin. So she visited a series of paint stores, took along her tape recorder, and asked for help from the staff behind the counters. Produced by Dmae Roberts.
