Hands/Language/Work

Hands/Language/Work

From an Hands anatomy lesson:

The origin of language is an interesting, impenetrable and discussed contemporaneity’s theme. The movement of the hands is part of the study of body language, Kinesics (movement).
Darwin said that without hands, the human being it would never attain its predominant place in society. The language of the hands has always had a particular meaning in Art history as well, suffice it to look at the paintings. The human being with the hands have always made masterpieces, in all fields, art, music, crafts. But the amazing thing is that the hands tell stories, thoughts, emotions. With our hands we communicate immediately what is happening to us. Often the unspoken words are replaced by gestures (The fine art of the gestures). It is not just an “almost” obsession of mine, the study of gestures has always fascinated many scientists, and also thrives on antinomies, regarding the placement of the Historical period in which it was born. I think that It’s a very long story born with the birth of the human being.

This series was born cause I like to portray and draw hands. Passion that I have since I was in art school and for a book of “Anatomy for artists” in particular, where were explained very well from an anatomical point of view.
