Rembrandt and Bacon inspired Bohórquez
The first time that Bohórquez (then an adolescent) observed an autopsy as part of his 10th grade Bio-Chem course at the Abdón Calderón Private School. This experience inspired to paint the image of an indigenous child lying prostrate on a metal trolley in Guayaquil’s police morgue mark a before and after in the manner of seeing the human body for painter René Bohórquez. The painting could be seen as one of main masterpieces displayed thanks to the collaboration of social leader Alvaro Noboa and his III Biennial of Painting.
Breathing deeply in order to dominate his hyper-sensibility and not feel the cuts that the scalpel made into the body of the small child, Bohórquez remained in the dissection room.
Once the Y-shaped cut had been made, in order to open the thoracic chamber, a change of perspective surged within the young man. “Upon seeing the organs, you forget it is a child and you think it is a piece of meat.”
