"Someday science will find the inner sea deep within us": A GIF Art from The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp by Rembrandt. My entry to ART EXPLOSION WEEK 78: Theme DEEP OCEAN

DEEP SEA  gif.gif

Hello, eSTEEMed friends, lovers of art and science and oceans.

Due to the constant blackouts here in the area of Venezuela where I live, our modem to connect to the Internet was damaged. That's why I don't frequent the platform much. However, here I am once, sharing my art in this wonderful...


I begin by congratulating @juliakponsford by the magical illustration she used in the call to this constest and by thanking her again for conceiving and curating this interesting contest as Art Explosion, whose bases are here. In my opinion this is the most important of the Visual Arts contests in the whole Steemit platform in terms of the power to convene participants, most of whom participate with high quality work and which has very generous prizes.

The challenge of this, the week 78, is what the theme of DEEP OCEAN is an methaphorical, poetic theme full of innumerable meanings.

Almost by chance I made a collage replacing the body of a recently executed criminal with one of a fish in the famous canvas The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp that the Dutch painter Rembrandt painted in 1632, when he was 26 years old. When I saw Julia's call for competition, it occurred to me that this collage could be used to prepare some work with which to participate.

"Someday science will find the inner sea deep within us" - Step by step.

As I always said, I'm not a professional illustrator but an improvised amateur. So I won't give a great explanation, technically speaking, on how I got to the result that I share with you today. I will only briefly describe the steps through which I arrived at the final finish of my GIF artwork:

I did this little exercise of artistic exploration using this resources:

1.- I downloaded an image of The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp from https://filipilu.blogspot.com/2013/11/master-study-rembrandt.html:

2.-Then I worked the image with the free software http://firealpaca.com/ editing it and making a sequence of images to create a very peculiar surgery:

3.-After creating a series of images intervened with FireAlpaca...

... I took them to http://firealpaca.com/douga/ to convert them into a GIF that I could share in the www.

The final result, which I show at the beginning of this post, tries to poetize the fact that we all carry a sea inside each one of us, because we all descend from those primitive beings that appeared in the primeval water. On the other hand, I wanted to make a metaphor about the relationship between science and art.
