Anatomy

As a student and painter I'm in awe of this astoundingly complex subject. The oil paintings are impressions of the preparation course, the feeling as a student being confronted with death.

"deep-blue skull" oil painting 34 x 26 cm.
The blue hour at the Institut.
It is not a still life. The shadows of the exhibit are growing and you hear the big old house breathing.
Is this skull watching you?

"The curtain behind the door in front of the fire" oil painting 30 x 40 cm.
You are so timid and small. There is so much to know, to learn and to experience.
Are you brave enough to go through the door, to lift the curtain and to find the fire of science?

"left over of one's life" oil painting 80 x 120 cm.
Our corpse will be burned, buried or donated for anatomical studies.
But everything that remains is dust or like Shakespeares Macbeth
"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player // That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, // And then is heard no more. It is a tale // Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, // Signifying nothing"

"mortaja" oil painting 61 x 45 cm.
The cloth is always the first thing you see.
On the dissecting table still under the cloth lies the corpse.
You know it is a donator who gave his body for you to study.
That generosity fills me with awe.

This oil painting is a subtractive colour model. You can see the background colours and second and third colours shining through the last layer.

The drawings are made during lessons. The sketches are impressions of the specimens.

I realized that the human being was dead, that I was staring at a corpse, and that it was not just a skull and sharp-edged bones, but a skull and bones that were a perfection of millions of other skulls and bones.
