Fascination with our bodies begins at an early age and continues throughout our lives as we learn about the unique temple that encompasses each of us. We are captivated by images of beautiful people and are compelled to compare ourselves to them. But our external physical bodies are often shaped and powered by what they contain: not only our systems but our souls. How many times have you heard these phrases: “He has a broken heart”, “She was a sight for sore eyes” or “That is my Achilles’ heel”? Our concrete bodies are used to describe intangibles. We can compare our structure to states of feeling or being.
Anatomy is inspirational for many artists. It is a means to communicate information, as well as to convey emotion. In this call for art we are asking for anatomical images or ideas that serve these purposes and are an integral part of your work.
