The Dictionary of Human Form equips the figurative artist with vitally important information about human structure. Structure is a completely different subject from anatomy. Rather than what we don’t see beneath the skin, structure analyses what we see, the organisation and appearance of the organic surface, how the body is made and the effects of its different actions. The body is complex and the subject is vast. It could be said that if you wish to ”speak” about the body, structure is your vocabulary. To represent the body convincingly, you will need to develop a structural way of seeing and understanding it.
