Prosthesis, Study 32
I think one of the reasons that might lead the development of this artwork, is to make me remember what we (humans) are made of and the small period in which we have life and health in fullness.
There’s one more thing I would like to mention, that is the use of typography in this work. I do so to emulate the characters of the medical images that I use as an initial source. This implies two visions: my reinterpretation as an artist and the mechanical “view” that a medical machine reproduces of the insides of a human body.
The medium I used in this work is oil on canvas (with triple gesso protection).
I must refer to some other technical issues:
-The canvas has a wooden structure (pine).
-The canvas is stapled by the back, glued and painted in white.
-The canvas is doubled clothed.
-The side views are gesso protected and painted black.
The painting will be packed in a crate, protected with a non-acid cloth and glassy paper, among other materials that guarantee a safe trip.
