The scalene muscles

About the theme of "the scalene muscles"

When I embarked on creating a series of geometric paintings, I was drawn to the simplicity and symmetry
of the triangle.

It seemed like the perfect foundational shape to explore visually, its clean lines and balanced proportions offering endless creative possibilities.

As I began painting, I focused on capturing the essence of
the triangle, experimenting with colors and textures to evoke different moods and emotions.

Little did I realize at the time that this geometric form held
a deeper significance beyond its aesthetic appeal.  It wasn't until I completed the entire series that the connection between my geometric compositions and the scalene muscles of the neck became apparent.

The revelation struck me suddenly, as if a veil had been lifted, revealing the hidden anatomical link between my artwork and the human body.

The scalene muscles, three paired structures situated on each side of the neck, form a distinct triangular shape, much like the one I had been painting all along.

It was a serendipitous discovery, one that added a layer of complexity
and meaning to my artistic exploration.  

With this newfound insight, I found myself reflecting on the interconnectedness of art and anatomy, how the language of shapes and forms transcends traditional boundaries to reveal deeper truths about
the human experience.

My geometric paintings, once abstract expressions of color and composition, now took on a dual identity, serving as both aesthetic creations and subtle reflections of anatomical structures
