Chronic Illness & Art Cont.

I’ve spoken before on my work concentrating around experiences with chronic illness and hospitalization. For this collection, I decided to take a more literal approach and showcase what’s on the inside rather than the outside.

I was inspired by the old medical illustrations of Da Vinci. Using sepia and sanguine tones with washes of blue and red, the images appear the look directly into the body; the white blood cells, deoxygenated and oxygenated blood, and layers of flesh almost seem alive.
