Chadwick & Spector’s Museum Art Painted on Human Anatomy

Laura Spector and Chadwick Gray from Houston, Texas also known as Chadwick & Spector have been collaborating for the past 18 years on an incredibly ambitious project entitled Museum Anatomy of museum artwork painted on human anatomy. This project that encompases museum paintings, body art, and photography, is inspired by a unique love of art history. Their primary focus is on paintings from the 19th century including works that have been stolen. Chadwick & Spector start out by finding historical paintings in storage facilities from museums around the world. Spector paints these famous works of art onto Chadwick’s body. His painted figure is immersed into a saturated black background and then documented with photography. The resulting photographs obscure much of Chadwick’s body. This technique sometimes disguises his human form and adds a contemporary twist to the age old craft of body art.
