Musical Anatomy, Drawings of Musical Instruments Reimagined as Body Parts


Artist Shawn Feeney reimagines musical instruments as body parts in the delightfully bizarre drawing series, “Musical Anatomy.” Prints are available for purchase.

Musical instruments are prosthetics for body parts we never had. They can extend and transform voice, gesture, and exhalation. The mystery of their forms is matched by the invisible oddity of their sounds. But what if the prosthetics were unnecessary? This series imagines bodies with musical anatomies, referencing musicians from a variety of genres and traditions.
