Collaborative artists Chadwick & Spector (Chadwick Gray & Laura Spector) have spent 20 years traveling the world in search of hidden and destroyed paintings from museum basements. Together, they re-envision lost images onto the contorted nude male body. Recently, their focus has been recreating stolen paintings found on the F.B.I. Art Crime database onto mutated plaster body parts. 

Museum Anatomy has been created in conjunction with museums in 12 countries. After selecting a painting to work from, the artists reinterpret the image using special effects make up onto the human body. This process takes anywhere from 8-15 hours. The ephemeral paintings are then documented through photography. The sculptural oil paintings they create may take up to one year to complete.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 28.
