Last week we started dissecting cats in my anatomy and physiology class. I was nervous about cutting into a kitty, even a dead and preserved one, but it turned out to be more like preparing meat than anything else. Now I know at least one way to skin a cat. Anyway with all of the pictures of dissections and actual dissections I have been experiencing lately the feeling of internal biological structures revealed has crept into my drawing. This is not representational but more abstract and imaginative, maybe a life form yet to be discovered. It reminds me of muscles and bones with some organs at either end. Maybe I will draw the outside next.
This is a piece I did a few weeks ago and fits in with some of my imaginary objects. As this piece developed I noticed that part of it look like a landing platform. It looks both grown and built maybe a symbiotic form created by winged animals and plants.
