WHY ART in ANATOMY FOR DECORATORS? These pieces of art are unique, and while calming, also will perk interest. They will help transform the office space from a potentially sterile environment to a colorful, energetic, aesthetic space.
ART in ANATOMY portrays human anatomy with a unique artistic bent. The art serves multiple functions, including office decoration and patient education. Simply put, anatomy is in us and around us; therefore, the art is universally relevant.
The following image shows the cells of alveoli surrounded by the capillary circulation , but has a pink predominance. The image portrays the lung and the cellular members that make it up. This piece serves as both an educational product but has artistic flare that softens its scientific portrayal. The artist Dr Davidoff can accommodate color coordination needs of the office. The image does not have to be pink!
WHICH OFFICES? Anatomy’s aforementioned universality means anatomical art is relevant to any office that provides a service to preserve and improve health. Such spaces include gyms and dance studios, as well as the offices of a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech pathologist, nurse, physician assistant, alternative medicine practitioner, acupuncturist, podiatrist, dentist, or physician.
The primary direction of the art is to portray anatomy of the body and the organs in a unique, striking, and relevant way. The art might help explain the purpose of a visit or of planned interventions. A neurologist, neurosurgeon, psychiatrist or psychologist, for example, may want to hang an artistic rendering of the brain in which the parts are displayed in different colors, thus allowing the practitioner to explain a diagnosis or a procedure.
The display of the athletic ability of the body in professional dance studios and gyms reflects a need of the institution to explore the function of the body beyond the skin surface.
Office spaces like the waiting room, changing room, and the personal office of the consulting professional, always have a need and use for art. These pieces help create a space with an ambiance that reflects the need of the office, the needs of visiting patients, and the professional’s personal taste.
DIVERSITY OF NEED. The waiting room of a solo practitioner, such as a psychiatrist or psychologist, usually requires an intimate atmosphere. These waiting rooms are often small and seat only one or two anxious patients.
A much different need exists for a multispecialty pediatric practice, with 20 -30 parents and children of different ages, running around the office.
A dance studio might call for an inspiring image expressing the heights of physical and creative expression.
ART in ANATOMY understands and accommodates this diversity of needs. “Ginkgo Tree” is a beautiful piece with modest, calming lines, and would be appropriate in an intimate setting. It stands alone and speaks for itself with its color and simplicity. A whimsical and colorful piece such as “Chest Carousel” would better suit the busy pediatric practice. A dancer in perfect balance expressing her inner soul would be appropriate for the dance studio.
WHERE IN THE OFFICE? The designs range from colorful and dynamic, to whimsical, intriguing and calming. A variety of possibilities exist, depending on the ambiance of the space and the need of the office.
In a personal office of a cardiologist or cardiothoracic surgeon with conservative taste for example, a regal art piece of the heart may be best. If, on the other hand, the office has a modern feel with monochrome style, a large, colorful, and abstract representation of the heart is better suited.
The waiting room has different needs. Waiting in an office can be a frustrating and anxiety provoking experience, especially when the practitioner is running late. A variety of design techniques divert the patients’ attention away from the stress. Scenes of nature are often used to this end. There are correlates of the trees and flowers and rivers in the body that have the same beauty when presented discreetly in an art piece. ART in ANATOMY provides these calming scenes of nature, but in addition discreetly display the anatomy.
These pieces can be thought provoking. “Chest of Fruit” is a creative reproduction of the chest using grapes, red peppers, and yellow banana peels. This piece would inspire a second look and perhaps put a small smile on the patients’ faces. Calming scenes from nature are often used in the office. “Mushroom Liver Tree” is a beautiful piece created from a CT scan of the liver. The liver is discreet enough to be hidden and the piece rendered enough to emphasize color and form, though a questioning mind has opportunity to search for the anatomy.
Interesting and diverse reading material is a useful diversion for waiting patients. An elegant ART in ANATOMY hard cover coffee book, with personally selected images, calls attention with its intensely colored visuals, entices with its educational anatomical structures, and pleases with its attention to aesthetic.
The changing rooms and bathrooms are often dull, which is why they present opportunities for the decorator to infuse the space with life and movement. The art can be displayed on a (low-cost) waterproof aluminum backing.
THEMES. Themes and color are primary concerns for the decorator. Bright colors are characteristic of Dr. Davidoff’s work and effectively provide a flash of interest in an otherwise generic office. In an elegant contemporary black and chrome office, for instance, a contrasting splash of color can provide great aesthetic relief. The art may overtly or covertly display the office’s special focus, or even something as personal as the practitioner’s hobby.
The body’s “trees” and “river ways” are recurring nature themes in ART in ANATOMY. “Sternal Cedar Trees by the River” is one such direct example. More whimsical is “Liver Lobster and Spongy Spleen in Ocean Conversation,” created from an abdominal CT scan. “Parts that Make the Whole” is a more serious, philosophically driven piece.
STYLES. ART in ANATOMY employs a variety of styles. Impressionism, traditionally a favorite genre for office art, pervades Dr. Davidoff’s work, though he also draws from 20th century art including expressionism, cubism, surrealism, symbolism, minimalism, surrealism and conceptual art.
