The subject of our mortality has been addressed by art in many different ways through the ages.
Benedetta Bonichi’s x-ray images are an interesting take on the age-old obsession.
There is a wit in her depiction of the bones beneath our skin.
A man and a woman perform a slow dance and all we see are the bones that signal the eventual end state of their romance.
Skeletal dancers are depicted in the midst of life performing the kind of strenuous moves possible for only those in the peak of physical health.
While a woman views her image in the mirror her vanity undone by the evidence of her inevitable demise.
All in all an artful reminder of the Biblical wisdom that in the midst of life we are in death.
