animalis polyedae XV by Volker Hermes

The Story

In this original drawing you can almost feel how the artist enjoyed the details of the octopus. The individual suction cups, the shape of the arms in one movement. There are also very complicated polyhedra, with many individual segments. This time it is a common feature that was the reason for this collage.


My collages are based on historical drawings of animals, either from early scientific expeditions or natural history studies. Using image processing, I transform individual parts of the drawn animal bodies into geometric shapes. In a final step, I combine the original drawing and the polyhedron to create a hybrid new animal.
