The Body Constructor, a Self Portrait by Lexi Ames

Lexi Ames Body Constructor detail

A student of biology and studio art, Lexi Ames says that “Art and science share a paramouric existence in my work. The cold, analytical side of science and meticulous reason are transformed into something mysterious and beautiful when re-imagined by artistic intent.” I love that phrase and the idea of art being the illicit partner of science.

Victorian aestheticism and strange medical practices influenced many of the pieces above from her Pseudo-Mysticism series.

Lexi is a student of biology and studio art— a medical illustrator to be. Keep an eye on this one. View her portfolio at Behance.
