week 2: the skeleton

This last week and the next two weeks of the anatomical sciences course focus on the skeleton. It is a, relatively,  gentle way into the course for me as the musculo-skeletal system is the one of the eleven body systems in total that I am most familiar with. The yawning gap between the perspectives on the subject – the art and/or the science – is becoming increasingly apparent as I am delving deeper and further into the subject, but I am excited, happy to struggle with the nuances of a field that has always fascinated me.

In the studio at the moment I am putting together a body of work for exhibition at the Anatomical Society‘s annual winter meeting which this year is to be held in Dundee. I am delighted to have this opportunity to show a collection of drawing, paintings and wax sculptures. Here is the poster for the show.anatomy-poster-1
