Summary
Danny Quirk is a young artist specializing in photorealistic watercolors, painting what the camera cannot capture. Much of his work illustrates the intricacies of human anatomy. On canvas, he paints figures in classic poses (sometimes á la Renaissance anatomist Andreas Vesalius) in striking chiaroscuro lighting. But, more dramatically, he also paints on living subjects, representing on the body's surface the anatomical structures that lie beneath. In this Medical Center Hour, Danny Quirk talks about "dissecting" with a paintbrush—and while he's talking, he'll complete an anatomical drawing on a student volunteer. Co-presented with the History of the Health Sciences Lecture Series
