Anatomical Self-Dissections by Danny Quirk

November 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Beautiful yet somewhat chilling watercolor paintings by artist Danny Quirk who lives and works out of Springfield, Massachusetts. Via his website:

My anatomical works combine classic poses, in dramatic chiaroscuro lighting, with a very contemporary twist… illustrating what’s underneath the skin, and the portrayed figure dissects a region of their body to show the structures that lay beneath.

I think these are really lovely. And if you like them you’ll most likely appreciate these anatomical paintings by Michael Reedy (nsfw), make sure to zoom in for detail. (via interrupted thoughts)
