Nude, as a color, is all encompassing. Despite being a descriptor of all flesh nude, as a color, it can be frightfully alienating. While the cultural perception of nude is finally, slowly, glacially even, beginning to shift away from the upsetting pinky beige of bandaid & crayon box infamy, to say nude is to perceive a color through the mesh of cultural preconception.
