ART AND RADIOLOGY ARTWORK

The mutilated and decomposed body intends to provoke an aesthetical impression in the re-creator. The proposed anatomical geometry creates an interaction between the bones, flesh and cavities and they work altogether in a system, an organic one. The size of the piece (medium format) intends to achieve the referred visual impact.
As an artist, I explore the human body using radiological medical studies done to sick, anonymous and genderless people. I like to call the results of my work as "Human Landscapes". This artwork is a portrait of a person with the aforementioned characteristics.

The artwork is a portrait of an anonymous, sick, genderless character that reveals its tragic and temporary carnal material. The initial source of this work is an MRI, whose acronym, as we may know, stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. I use abstract titles for my work far away from the emotions they arouse in the observer, such as the painter Francis Bacon did (https://www.francis-bacon.com/paintings). But this work could have had another title, “The Indomitable”, referring to a sickness–cancer–or to the nickname that the MRI’s inventor gave to his scanning medical machine.

Beauty is in many places. One of these sites is the interior of a human body, a Jane Doe’s or John Doe’s. “Spine Study 2” is an artwork which shows a deteriorated set of tissues and bones. The elements, its colors and shapes seek to achieve beauty, a frantic one.

The initial source of the work is a radiological study made on a sick, genderless human body. The dazzling light of the X-ray study discloses the intimacy of this deteriorated living organism. Such as a landscape exposes the sky, a lake, a tree this “Human Landscape” displays the tumultuous insides of the body.

Art and Radiology Artwork

I hope you enjoy my visual art gallery: Art and Radiology. 

The man and its precarious condition (temporality, loss...) is the central topic of my work. Some initial resources that I use in my work are radiological medical studies done to persons. I like to call the results of my work as “Human Landscapes”. By this I mean to explore the carnal material that we humans are made from.

My Pictorial Currents

Because of the above mentioned, the pictorial currents of my work are figurative and abstract. Sometimes, my work stands right in the middle: it's semi-figurative or else semi-abstract.

On the other hand, the media and techniques of my choice are oil, acrylic on canvas or paper in medium and small format (70 square inches up to 8 by 11 inches).

My Art Influences

My artistic influences are Mexican, American and European painters. One strong art influence that I have is Francis Bacon artist, who in some of his works used  X-ray images made to human and animals. 

Art and Radiology 

I find X-rays fascinating as initial art resources, and therefore, I use them to capture the interior of the human body.

In this way, the hip, the rib cage, the skull, the spine, the hands, the heart, and lungs are some organs of the human body that I explore in my pictorial work.
