open studio: who / by kelly heaton

Detail of "Who," 2016.  Colored pencil, graphite, and gouache on paper.

I continue to study electronic circuit design as a means to represent the "energy anatomy" of a human being.  In this drawing, "Who," I have constructed each chakra of the body using a simple circuit designed to manifest the corresponding energy.  In the above detail, you can see the solar plexus, heart, throat, mind, and crown chakras (in ascending order).  In the coming weeks, I'll be working on sculptural studies of the chakras; and I will explain my reasons in greater detail.
