Art of the Human Body

About the Artwork

This drawing represents the fragility, intricacy and beauty of the human body. The rib cage, a structure that protects the heart and lungs, symbolizes the vulnerability of our internal organs. The flowers around it represent growth, healing and the beauty of life. Together, the rib cage and the flowers express an appreciation for the human body’s potential for recovery, renewal and resiliency as part of homeostasis and in the face of illness.

As a student of medicine, Deepali Bhalla has always been fascinated by the intersection of art, nature and medicine, and the ways these fields can inform and enhance each other. In addition to a passion for medicine, Deepali practices art as a creative outlet, trying new techniques in both areas. “I believe that art has the power to convey complex ideas in a way that is engaging and accessible, and I hope to explore the intersection of nature, art and medicine by showcasing the beauty of the world around us. I hope to use art as a means of education and inspiration, inviting viewers to reflect on ourselves and the world around us.”

    This art is a different kind of thought.You have shown penetrative and hidden meaning of the skeleton using black , white and colors.I love this art appreciation..!

  7. Deepali this is awesome. The beauty that lies in the human body and which is portrayed here as nothing but bones, has a much deeper meaning to it. We can bring out that beauty in so many ways to celebrate life. Well done!!!

  8. Deepali, there’s something eerie about the skeleton all in black, colorful flowers growing from it, around it. It’s as if life is emerging from inescapable death and decay. And it’s all still worth it.

    You also chose to leave the skull and limbs out. Hmmm…

    It’s striking. May you find the intersection of medicine, art, and nature meaningful…
