EYE ‘HEART’ SPLEEN

 

‘Eye Heart Spleen’ is a body of work made out of 13 photographs representing human organs sculpted out of wild plants and weeds foraged in Bristol.  The plants were collected and assembled early in the day, so as to photograph them in the best possible light, and to keep them from wilting.  This work invites the viewer to regard our vital structures as beautiful living organisms, and to contemplate the miraculous work taking place inside our bodies, even in this very moment.

    Beautiful! I love the concept!
    Let me know when you are exhibiting, or have a market. Keep up the good work and will be in touch if something comes up that I think you might be good for.
    All the best
