Biology

This is me at college last year. It's also me doing art research. Crazy I know!

I got to go up to the biology department and study the specimens under a microscope, taking photos and making drawings.

This is part of the stomach I think...

This is a rat's heart

This is definitely an eye. And I can still name most of the parts. Thank you A-level biology.

This is a piece of muscle tissue which influenced one of my final pieces that year.

Here are my three final pieces; a blood clot, muscle and bone.
The paintings are 1x1m using mainly acrylic paint with string, mod rock and tights. I was looking at contrasting scale - taking something really small and showing it really large- which is something that I still explore with my art.
