These sketches of the female form are from a life drawing class I took shortly after visiting the Michelangelo exhibit at the MET, to better understand what I'd been taught about him and his work in the classroom. Prior to this experience, I was rigid in the way I thought of, viewed, and created art. Although I have a strong background in the physical sciences, I never thought to bring it to bear in my consideration of art—especially not in something as basic (or so I thought) as drawing. Thus, there was a fundamentally different mode of thinking that I applied depending on the context. I viewed the body in concrete terms based on my understanding of anatomy and forces such as gravity and resistance, only when reading a scientific journal, article, or something similar, and viewed it aesthetically and in a wholly unspecific way when grappling with the nebulous concept of art. The same arbitrary mental partition came to bear in viewing Michelangelo’s drawings. I was unable to see and marvel at his obvious understanding of the human body, an understanding which was especially impressive given the time period. I also did not grasp the significance of his background as a sculptor or how that could possibly have a discernible impact on his work in a completely separate medium. Art humanities helped me to draw connections between my knowledge of the physical sciences, and my understanding of art, and has thus taught me to begin to think about art, and drawing in particular, in a multidisciplinary way.
