Sangue e Cuore, pulsanti, vitali. Senza di loro la vita non sarebbe in noi, eppure a molti destano un senso di raccapriccio, di malessere.
Nulla di più naturale e affascinante, secondo una diffusa tendenza alla riscoperta dell’anatomia umana

The blood vessels in human head

L’anatomia non è più solo uno studio alla base del disegno, diventa essa stessa parte integrante del progetto, motivo decorativo, concetto essenziale su cui si basa la creazione.
Il riferimento anatomico è meno scientifico e più incline alla creazione di un’immagine shock ma con ironia nella collezione Haute Couture del 2003 (in alto), iperrealistico ai limiti del buongusto nell’abito esposto nella sua mostra a Montreal (in basso)
Più velata l’allusione al sangue, inteso come flusso e reticolo ornamentale, per la stilista Yiqing Yin (in alto) e l’artista Shirley Boudreaux(in basso)

Heart and blood, pulsating, vital. Without them life wouldn’t be in us, yet within many people arouse a sense of horror, of malaise. Nothing more natural and charming, according to a widespread tendency to rediscover the human anatomy.
The vision of the circulatory system, of the heart and venous network, not only stylized, but also realistic, started taking field in art and fashion.
The body, as has already happened for the bones that support it, is gutted and brought to light. The anatomy is not only a study at the base of the drawing, itself becomes an integral part of the project, decorative motif, essential concept underlying the creation.
Braking the eventual initial revulsion, perhaps explicated by the symbolic association blood/life/death, the circulatory system becomes an intricateand intriguing virtuosity of threads, embroidery, decorations.
1) PRECIOUS WEAVES
The young and talented Indian jewelry designer Eina Ahluwalia celebrates life, own and in a more conceptual sense, through large pieces that wrap the body and reveal its innermost (literally) essence.
2) PRINTED CIRCUIT
The most famous example is constituted by the always fanciful, and on the edge of the divertissement of the enfant terrible of fashionJean Paul Gaultier, who uses the heart, muscles and veins as basic pattern of prints and embroideries.
The anatomical reference is less scientific and more prone to create a shockimage in the Haute Couture collection of 2003 (right), hyper-realistic acting within at the limits of good taste in the dress displayed in his exhibition at Montreal (left image)
3) APPLIED PATHOLOGY
Pathological anatomy also for a student (as yet unknown, but we wait any clarification on) of theShih Chien University
4) A THIN RED THREAD
More veiled allusion to the blood, as a stream and ornamental pattern, for the fashion designer Yiqing Yin and the artist Shirley Boudreaux
5) CROCHET HEART
The sinuous, enveloping proceeding of veins and arteries, is well suited to the similarity with the thread. For this, among the techniques most used for the representation of such anatomical element, there are the embroidery, the knit and the hook, in one indulge of shapes and fantastic usages.
