“There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.”


― Friedrich Nietzsche, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

The oil paintings in Bodily Knowledge were executed using a traditional Renaissance technique, in which an opaque bichromatic underpainting is layered with increasingingly translucent glazes of pure color.
