Study of a skull with acromegaly, from the museum at the University of Edinburgh.
This is one of a series of works informed by anatomical specimens, models and illustrations. I am exploring the humanising effect of using traditional media and techniques to evoke echoes of the subjects' former lives. The interpretation or reinterpretation of anatomical display changes the context of the subject matter, which alongside the muted colour palette situates it in an interstitial space between the time of it's creation or entry into the museum, and the moment that it now occupies.
