Self-Dissections by Danny QuirkJuxtapoz // Monday, 21 Nov 2011
Just like the some of the great works of Fernando Vincente that we showed on the site last week, we really love the anatomical self-dissection series by Massachusetts-based Danny Quirk. The realism in these is perhaps the most striking feature. All the works are done in watercolor.
Quirk writes about the series: "Aspiring to become a medical illustrator, these works were done in my senior year at Pratt Institute. Always having been interested in anatomy/the body, decided to do a series of paintings combining Classical aesthetics with a surreal approach. I plan to work on this series for about another 6 months while I am taking prerequisite courses for graduate school requirements, where I intend to become a medical illustrator."
