Anatomical Self-Dissections by Danny Quirk

Beautiful watercolor paintings by American artist Danny Quirk. In his paintings people literally reveal their inner self by self-dissection, showing inferior muscles of the back revealing the spinal chord, musculature of the neck and trunk, and their heart. Amazing!

Danny Quirk about Self-Dissection:

My anatomical works combine classic poses, in dramatic chiaroscuro lighting, with a very contemporary twist… illustrating what’s underneath the skin, and the portrayed figure dissects a region of their body to show the structures that lay beneath.
