Painted X-ray Pictures


Medical physicist Arie van ’t Riet,  based in the Netherlands, searches for an example to demonstrate and visualise the influence of x-ray energy on the contrast of an x-ray image.

“I arrived at flowers. After some years I started to edit and partly colour these x-ray images. And I added animals,” he says.



van ’t Riet now produces a series of x-ray artworks demonstrating the inner beauty of life.

“The x-rays demonstrate the complexity and the inner refinement of natural objects. See the pelvic structure of the frog.”

“Usually, the availability of an animal is decisive for the image. It starts with a traffic victim, or a reptile which died, or a fish from the market, or some prepared insects from the shop, or an animal caught by the cat,” he says.



“Next, I search for plants and flowers belonging to the habitat of the respective animal. From the animals and flowers and plants, I build my complete natural scene.”
