Anatomic Relationships, 1995-2004
The Anatomic Relationships paintings are a series of diptychs, triptychs and polyptychs. Each painting depicts a specific isolated, dissected human body part from a medical book in painstaking detail and in an oversized fashion on canvas with acrylic paint. The words in the paintings create a dialogue between the individual panels as well as between the panels and the viewer. The numbers refer to the classification system used in medical books. Literally speaking, the subcutaneous parts are out in the open, but in a deeper sense its cultural and social taboos, like death and sexuality, are being uncovered.
