Écorché Anatomical Sculpture

by | Apr 5, 2023 | 0 comments

The best way to learn about human anatomy is by using the process of studying musculature without the skin (écorché in French, or skinned in Spanish). This project was really an exercise to study and learn, to be able to make better sculptures for other projects. The old masters of the art, such as DaVinci, Michelangelo, Raffaello and others made these studies in sketches and paintings, often before beginning the final work on their masterpieces.

An example of how I use this process is Jara’s original sketch in the film currently in production, titled “Traces, retraced” which you can see here.
