Slip of the Tongue– for Anthony
"Very Fine People on Both Sides" – for Barlaam of Antioch
"Growing up in a medical household, I was surrounded by discussions focused on the human body: its diseases, diagnosis, and treatments. In my family of scientists those conversations continue to this day, and the profound effect that exposure has had on my art continues. My research focuses on our eternal fascination with the human reproductive system and challenges perceptions of the female anatomy. I approach my work using a very systematic method, grounding myself in research on the history of medicine. An extension of my research includes "sacred anatomy," a term coined by literary historian Jonathan Sawday to describe the pre-16th century practice of dismembering cadavers, particularly nobility and saints, in order to disperse the remains for widespread worship.
