British artist Geoffrey Harrison is opening a solo show this Thursday, August 15th, 2013 at Barts Pathology Museum in London. As the artist-in-residence, in what CNN has named one of the World’s Weirdest Medical Museums, Geoffrey created 25 paintings based on the anatomical and pathological specimens found in the museum and they are gorgeous! The paintings also reference “the nature of spontaneous unnatural growth, damage, division and conjoining.”
The son of medical illustrators, Geoffrey creates work that revolves around biological and anatomical imagery that also “incorporates ideas of body as vessel for ‘self’ and the problematic boundaries of this in contrast to the ‘other’“.
