Ceramic, Silver, 2012

I am intrigued by the trials of medicine, its impacting breakthroughs and horrendous setbacks. The act of dissection is intrusive, yet it was once our only means to understand the human body. Academic study produced early anatomical drawings depicting bodies splayed open - imagery as captivating as it was unpalatable. At once familiar and foreign, these ceramic forms imply the grace of the natural body and the visceral resemblance of our inner workings.
