U Penn Gazette: “Artist with a Syringe”

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Eric Finzi C’77, a dermatologic surgeon, has molded and sculpted hundreds of faces over the years: old men, young women, even legendary French actress Sarah Bernhardt. He’s plumped up lips, smoothed out brow lines, sucked up excess fat—and that’s just in his artwork.

This morning, he’s been working on faces in his art studio—a former auto body repair shop in a Kensington, Maryland, warehouse—but in a few hours, it’s off to the other faces awaiting him at his cosmetic-surgery practice in nearby Chevy Chase. He’s been splitting his work hours between art and surgery for over a decade now, the result of a promise he made to himself after finishing his medical residency.
