Imaginary Organs

Imaginary OrganThis gouache and pencil drawing gives a little bit of a view of how im using organs in my work. 20x30cm. Before i reached the stage of being able to draw these imaginary organs realistically i had to study real organs…so i did alot of dissections of animal organs and as a result i couldn’t eat red meat for a week. The heart is such an amazing, beautiful thing. Actually i think that most of my photos of organs are really beautiful but i’m really not sure if that’s just because im going insane being surrounded by so much BLOOD.

James Jean is an artist i have just discovered and he has definitely wooed me into his disturbing but intruigingly beautiful acrylics, and drawings. This is one of his most recent and it really ties in with my current inspirations with growth and organs. Have a closer look at his work at his blog processrecess

Thanx James

I was under the impression from age 6-12 that if you touched the keyboard when the computer was off it would literally BLOW UP. heh i love my brother. But hey clearly a fear i have conquered. And now i have this awesome new way to promote my art being taught webdesign and working the web by sharon boggon (see her blog on working the net)

But hey, for anyone who doesnt know me, i guess i should let you know something about myself…Im 21, coming up to the graduation of an art (textiles) degree at Canberra’s ANU, which i guess is supposed to make me ready to go out into the world to be crushed as an artist. But hey i could always become a public servant and be crushed that way instead, isn’t that our duty as canberrans.
