Medically Inspired Art

2016 came and went in a sometimes literal blur. While there are many days I don’t remember, I have an enormous body (so to speak) of work to help me trace back through the days. With a special thank you to the teams of doctors, family, friends and neighbors who helped me stay alive and industrious- here’s a small sampling of the medically inspired art produced over the course of the year.

A small selection of GIF animations made from medical test images/files, collections of moss and lichen, and slices of my stomach and a dogwood tree.

Digital collage with film stills of Triborough Bridge, Lichen, Chipped Paint, Rusty Walls, and Abdominal CT scans. (Prints of digital collage images available here)

“Imperfect Bodies” sketches from group drawing lessons at the Metropolitan Museum become a mini-zine circulated by Lady Art NYC (hopefully more to come!)

undoubtedly a weird one- this one is an unfinished foam body-cast, with a cocophany of found objects/materials. Work in Progress. Featured 4/2016 – It’s Alive! at World Money Gallery.

And of course- Flux Factory’s Artificial Retirement, which exhibited the gastric/lunar textile series In Honor of Imperfection: Celestial Bodies in an Urban Sphere
