Danny Quirk’s Anatomical Self-Dissection paintings are not for the weak hearted
As weird as self-dissection might sound it surely isn’t for the weak hearted and even for the freakiest people it is in the domains of a taboo practice. However artist Danny Quirk doesn’t shirk away from depicting this dark practice in his new photo realistic series called Anatomical Self-Dissections which shows subjects performing painful self-dissections on their own bodies. Danny a well-known fine art illustrator accomplishes this niche portraiture depiction with a very surreal approach showing the subjects tearing off their skin and muscles to reveal inner body parts by revealing the muscle, tissue, bones and organs.
According to Danny his work is clearly on the darker side but the attention to detail in coming up with these paintings showing classic poses with chiaroscuro lighting clearly shows the anatomy of human body structure. The amount of work put into each of these paintings can range from 20 to 30 hours so you can very well see the end result.
