HUMAN BODY ARTWORK

Human Body Artwork
I created this artwork after studying the body of art of the English-American photographer, Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904), who analyzed bodies (animals and humans) in motion.

I base this work on various video stills from a true documentary where a psychiatrist performs a collective interview to three schizophrenic catatonic patients.

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.

In this portrait I looked forward to create the gaze of the male nudes to provoke an emotional response in the observer. This to include him/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.

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.

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.

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.

Creating Human Body Artwork

Thank you for visiting this Human Body Artwork Gallery. You're welcome!

I hope you enjoy this human artwork gallery where you'll find diverse paintings in different modalities: traditional (oil, acrylic on canvas or paper) and digital techniques. As I said in other occasions, because I’m an creator with interests in figurative art, one thing that calls my attention is the man (referring to the human species) and its precarious conditions (temporality, decay, illness...). So because of these reasons, the man is the central topic of my work.

Art Initial Resources

That said, as an artist-in every artwork–, I use all the resources I have in hand. This means that I indistinctly adopt the following resources: human models, digital photography, chronophotos (video stills), digital images, radiology image archives, clay and also digital sculptures (done in Blender). The aforementioned means that almost any media can be an initial resource for my work.

Main Art Topics 

Therefore, the main art topics that I approach is the body structure and, sometimes I introduce the facial features. I explore the diverse ways to solve the  artwork: front, three-quarter views, profile, in movement and in repose, etc.

Art Modalities

As I aforementioned, the modalities I explore are traditional techniques and digital painting (with a digital tablet, Photoshop, 3D sculpture in Blender, etc.). 

The Art Process and Art Coaching

Finally, I invite you to find my artwork descriptions at patreon.com/veronicahuacuja where I explain its process, such as the learning goals, the material that I used to make up the work, my previous thoughts, technical tips, and more.
