I saw this photo in my Facebook News Feed today and it intrigued me, so I looked it up. Originally, I thought that the couple in the painting was pregnant and that the butterflies coming out of her belly represented the life cycle, but I was wrong. It turns out that this painting is only a part of a series of paintings that represent a love story.
Each photo in this set has a symbol in it. I think it is truly amazing and awe-inspiring.
This project was published on Bēhance, an online platform from Adobe that is designed for artists to showcase their creative work and get it discovered, on January 17, 2012, by Danny Quirk. He specializes in photorealistic watercolors, painting, and the things the camera cannot see. The “hidden eye”. His photos are perceived to be a bit dark, but they are really about exploration. He is best known for his series entitled ‘Anatomical Self-Dissections‘.
What the artist says about the series.
The piece was done as a sequential series, depicting the journey of love from rejection to reciprocation, based off personal accounts.
Watch Danny Quirk as he goes through the process of creating an anatomical dissection body painting.
