Artist's description:

Michelangelo used drawing as a way of understanding the anatomy and structure of the model, for use in subsequent sculptures. The point of the pencil is like the point of the chisel, tracing over the forms to understand how they move, where they go, whether they go in or out. In the best drawings, the point of the pencil is unified with or maps onto exactly, the focus of the eye, moving about the surfaces of the visible world as it attempts to make sense of what it sees. There is perhaps no greater draftsman than Michelangelo for showing how drawing is a way of thinking and understanding the world. My study, in turn, is an attempt to re-understand Michelangelo.
