This article explains and shows some examples of the graphical and sculptural works of the Austrian pathologist Veit Krenn, who uses his detailed knowledge of microscopic and macroscopic anatomy to create derived objects of art, which strikingly transcend the templates to reach an impressive state of abstraction – appealing discoveries of the true contents of the original forms towards their structural essence. By means of analogies the creative approach of the artist is readily used to illuminate similar ways of contemplating the essence of meaning in the philosophy of language in a brief outline.
