HUMAN BODY ARTWORK

Human Body Artwork



As a creator, I’m interested in abnormality, deformity and its effects in human life. The persons that lose one of their five senses or were born missing one of them call my interest. I explore and investigate their lives. This initial information helps me develop my work. I created this piece with deep respect and empathy for these persons.

As a creator, I’m interested in abnormality and its impact on human life. To make up this artwork, I made up a research of people that live conjoined lives. I created this piece with deep respect and empathy towards these people.

The gaze of the nude  characters intend to provoke  an emotional response in the  observer. This to include him  or her in their tragic condition.  I took this portraiture's  principle of art from  Rembrandt's "Syndics of the  Drapers' Guild", where the  characters stare at the  observer and that action  makes the latter participate in  what's happening in the  masterpiece.

My work intends to picture life with its sometimes dark, dramatic, incomprehensible ways of presenting itself. I try hard to make art that has polysemy or different interpretations by the observers. So, I only point in a direction without defining a destiny. The journey has to be made by the re-creator.

The character in this artwork has an emotional state. So, that being said, its motivations is something I leave to the observer to interpret.

Some of my art interests are dramatic scenes related to people being interviewed. I based this work on the fearsome illness known as schizophrenia. I used various video stills from a true documentary (1) where a doctor performs a collective interview to various patients where one of their symptoms is present: wax flexibility.

The influences of artists upon other artists. This time, the work of the British, Edweard Muybridge (1830-1904), amazed me. I based my work on his motion-picture projections.

The nudity of this body appears to show its state of defenselessness. What inspired me this artwork are the photographs of Toby Burrows’ series, “Nothing to lose”.

This is an eerie, black painting that recreates a haunting scene in a dungeon. Somewhat a dramatic slumber.

I tried to make a dramatic artwork by using firm lines in the  foreshortening and exalting the nudity of the model.

The character in this artwork has an emotional state. So, that being said, its motivations is something I leave to the observer to interpret.   In most of my work, I make up a digital version which I do before or after the traditional version. This artwork is no exception.

The frantic behaviour of this anonymous man in a psychiatric asylum deeply impressed me. I watched him on a film done decades ago. His story, still “talks” to us… The man in yellow, the man in pain.

This multiple body-the bodies of a bicephalous-made up by a whitish and blue bi-chromatic mass, almost like a clay sketch prior to the volume of the sculpture, shows its painful nudity. Added to this is the daily life of a dialogue between the two characters that is interrupted by the observer’s gaze.

Fatness is a human condition that, in arts, is a splendid topic to work with. The generosity with which an overweight body exposes itself, displaying its carnality, is magnificent.

In this work I tried to grasp the dramatic gesture of the woman. I associated her demeanor with a verse from a song of Omeria: “Allí amé a una mujer  terrible...”. (”There I loved a terrible woman...”.)

In this painting, I looked forward to create the gaze of a nude male posing in a disturbing pose, and by that action making the observer take part in what’s happening in the piece.

I attend to workshops where physical models pose to the participants, but during this Covid period, I haven’t had the chance to do so. So, what I do, among other activities, is remembering these past exercises, and draw/paint them by heart. In most of them I try to achieve the gesture. I invite you to watch a 1 min video where you can appreciate the process of the artwork at https://www.patreon.com/posts/45864748

One thing that calls my attention as a visual artist is the oeuvre of other artists. This time the work of the British photographer, John Coplans (1920-2003) amazed me. This work is base on his photo “Self Portrait: Torso With Large Upper Arm II", 1985.

Just after admiring Eadweard Muybridge’s (1830-1904) body of art, I tried to picture the character of this work with great dynamism and in an emotional state. So, that being said, the character’s motivations is something I leave to the observer to interpret.

The artwork is a rushy acrylic painting with dramatic dark strokes. One of the things I try to portray is the dynamism of the figure. I title many of my works with abstract names without attending to the drama they show. This is an influence I have from the great 20th century painter, Francis Bacon.

People that lose one of their senses, were born missing one of them, or suffer mental instability call my attention as an artist. I investigate their lives using true video documentaries, photos, articles, etc. The initial information I gather helps me feel empathy for their conditions and for the artwork's creation. I made up this piece with deep respect for these persons. In this work, I used a mixed technique: oil and digital painting. I scanned a previous oil portrait artwork several days ago, and I accomplished the character's body.

These paintings operate in a diptych, which means they flow together to form a single unified scene with a narrative that bonds them. They search to have a strong sense of visual coherence.

As an artist, I have always been interested in abnormality and its effects on human life. I based this work on a series of public photographs of human fetuses within a jar. They stroke my attention because of its composition, colors, dramatic poses and their strange beauty.

I attend workshops where I practice the human body with a physical model. Days after, I rehearse those exercises by heart. This activity is a warm up training, where I try to remember the original model exaggerating its gestures. I practice this previous activity using the digital or traditional techniques, such as acrylic on paper. This artwork is one result of these activities.

With a certain concept of a female’s body I began sketching. Little by little, the body began to take shape, offering itself. The results, as most of my work, is dramatic.

There’s a folk singer-songwriter called Lhasa de Sela (1972-2010). She was born in America and raised in Mexico. One of her songs, “The Desert”, sang with her deep, husky voice, was the inspiration for this artwork.

Human Body Artwork

Thank you for visiting this collection. You're welcome.

One thing  I say with humbleness is that I paint what human life unhides at certain moments and permits me to palpate. Sometimes–when this happens–it is the extraordinary that unfolds, plentiful with deformity and drama. I seek to capture this deranged beauty with polysemous meanings. Within these results, I always search too... to cause a visual impact, a blow, a strike upon the soul of the observer.

My Art Initial Resources

As an artist-in every artwork–, I use all the resources I have in hand. This means that I indistinctly use resources, such as human models, digital photography, chronophotos (video stills), digital images, radiology image archives, clay and also digital sculptures (done in Blender) and traditional techniques: oil, acrylic o canvas or on paper. The aforementioned means that almost any media can be an initial resource for my work.

Sometimes, I even mix traditional techniques (oil, acrylic) with digital art, such as in Head Study 76. The process of this piece is interesting. I sculpted a human head in Blender (open-source 3D software), duplicated it and merged both pieces. In the same environment, I explored the work from different points of view, such as profile, above, and below, etc. I then selected the one I liked most. I used the final image as an initial source to paint this portrait in a physical environment with oil on paper.

Art Techniques

The techniques I use are traditional (oil and acrylic, crayon, pencil, clay sculpting, etc.) and digital painting (digital tablet, Photoshop, 3D sculpture, etc.).
