We are impermanent beings, and perhaps that is best illustrated with anatomy.
Chinese illustrator and anatomy instructor Chuan-Bin Chung encourages his students to understand the intricacies of the human body by drawing them. For many of his lessons he creates impermanent drawings on chalkboards as a helpful guide, but instead of quick sketches as one might be accustomed to, the pieces are exacting and colorful depictions of bones, muscles, and tendons—practically works of art in their own right.
I’ve seen many art pieces based on human anatomy, all of them stirring and beautiful. I would put these in that class. They may not last long, but there is a striking beauty there, which will reside in minds long after the chalk is gone.
Those of you with Facebook accounts can hit the above links, fortunately, for the those of us without FB accounts, Chuan-Bin Chung has a youtube channel. There’s much to enjoy!
