Our friends over at Street Anatomy are opening a show tomorrow called OBJECTIFY THIS: Female Anatomy Dissected and Displayed featuring the anatomical work of artists Fernando Vicente, Jason Levesque, Cake, Michael Reedy, Danny Quirk, Emily Evans, Pole Ka, Tristan des Limbes, and Amylin Loglisci.
The show opens at 6pm at Design Cloud Gallery and runs through September 29th. I’ll be there, so stop by and say hello!
Here’s some phenomenal new work from photographer Brian Matthew Hart (previously) who is a master of drawing with light. Hart created a number of mosaics using individual exposures, the largest hand above, part of an unfinished diptych, is made from 324 photographs! I definitely urge you to check out his website for plenty more. (via l’acte gratuit
I just posted about the paper birds and animals of Diana Beltran Herrera a few weeks ago, but these new bird anatomy sculptures made with cut paper and vinyl film deserve some special attention. See more over on Flickr.
I’ve been itching for months to post the work of Manhattan-based designer and artist Jason Freeny who creates delightfully morbid dissections of toys and other pop culture characters. His most recent creation is this triptych of three 18″ tall lego men who have been surgically “cut” to reveal their mysterious, Lego anatomy. Freeny acquires actual 18″ novelty toys sold by Lego and then creates the organs and bones using sculpted foam. You can see dozens of photos from the creation of these pieces on Facebook, and check out an interview with him over on Street Anatomy. (via the fox is black)
I’m really enjoying these quilled paper anatomy pieces by artist Sarah Yakawonis. Like so many great artists featured here on Colossal it’s immediately apparent when looking at these sculptures that Yakawonis possesses a patience unlike anything I can comprehend. You can see more of her work (and buy prints) over on Etsy and Society6. If you liked this, also check out the work of Lisa Nilsson. (via all things paper)
Artist Jeremy Mayer (previously) recently completed a new sculpture titled Skull I made from vintage typewriter parts. As with all of his assemblages the skull was created without use of welding or adhesives, instead the parts are bent, screwed, and bolted into place using only components extracted from typewriters.
This made me smile hugely. Piñata Anatomy by Minneapolis-based Carmichael Lynch of Carmichael Collective. (via laughing squid)
Latvian artist Alex Konahin spent two weeks drawing this gorgeous skull for clothing company Heretics using little more than black ink and a few dip pens (and probably a few decades of artistic experience). Konahin’s similarly meticulous line art was making the rounds on a number of blogs earlier this week. See much more over on Behance.
