Greg A Dunn Fine Art Prints

gregg_a_dunn_print

Greg Dunn earned a PhD in neuroscience in 2011 before becoming a professional artist and devoting his time to painting. The patterns of branching neurons he saw through the microscope reminded him of the aesthetic principles of Asian art.

While much of his work focuses on neurons he also explores other tissue types, such as glia and non-neuronal brain cells. This print focuses on the layered structure of the retina which is designed to both collect light and integrate basic visual information before it is sent to higher order cortical structures for detailed processing.

The Anatomical Venus

anatomical-venus-spread-2

Clemente Susini’s wax Anatomical Venus (c.1790) lies in a Venetian glass and rosewood case at La Specola, Florence. She was created as a means to teach human anatomy without the need for dissection. She can be dismembered into dozens of parts until finally revealing a foetus in her womb. Shortly after Susini’s wax Venus was introduced many anatomical Venus’ started appearing throughout Europe.

In this book Joanna Ebenstein explores these female wax models and reveals their evolution from medical teaching aid to fetish figure. Looking at the intersection between life, death, science, religion, body and soul.
