Oh, my dear sweet neglected blog, how could I have left you so. I promise to spend more time with you in 2013.

Hello Laura Splan! You are an artist after my own heart. Doilies made visceral. Still beautiful but drawn with blood. Yes, yet anther example of artworks I wish I had thought of.



My work explores perceptions of beauty and horror, comfort and discomfort. I use anatomical and medical imagery as a point of departure to explore these dualities and our ambivalence towards the human body. Viruses, blood, x-rays of bones and viscera can be at once unsettling and enticing. I often combine scientific images and materials with more domestic or familiar ones.
