The Story

Due to their regularity geometrical shapes like polyhedra develop a certain strength, at least that's how we interpret it. Thus a truncated Hexahedron fits very well to this study of anatomy artist from 1842.

The Process

The historical drawings are pre-studies for paintings or exercises, in order to depict the human being in its form and movement correctly. I painted polyhedric forms as watercolors and inserted them in a digital collage as a head in the drawings. The head as a place of our thoughts and calculations is replaced by mathematics. On the other hand the polyhedric forms, previously pure geometric constructs, become emotionally charged when combined with studies of the human body.
