Interest in medical research and imagery spurred my desire to understand the unknown interiors of the human body. This curiosity has led me to explore its internal elements and the complex abstract mappings that make up and emphasize the body’s structure, intricacy, and fragility.
The fantasy and mystery that lie within our own interiors drives me to create personal interpretations of the body’s internal systems, referring directly to the physiology of the human body – organs, vessels, cell structure, etc. Abstraction happens gradually in my process. When researching I try to visualize the body’s systems or objects through a schematic or diagrammatic lens that translates the body from its complex structure, to a more simplified diagrammatic form that is approachable.
