A medical practitioner and visual artist, Linton Meagher puts medicine directly into his art by using objects such as pills, scalpels, and even silicon breast implants as his medium of choice. His work is beautiful and fluid from far, but up close it’s hard not to wince at the hundreds of sharp scalpel blades that make up his canvas.
Medical objects are both beautiful in their ability to heal and chilling with the potential for misuse. Either way, they certainly make for an interesting art medium.
