Description

While working as a marketing coordinator in a health-care center for over 10 years, I became intrigued with all the x-rays I saw during my career, depicting various states of the human skeletal system. As an artist, I was fascinated by being able to see the inner workings and sculptural forms of the human body and I envisioned a way to incorporate them into my artwork. These x-rays, to me, truly represent the spiritual and scientific wonders of nature and the human body. This lead me to create the “X-Rayted” series, which I began in early 2010 and continue to expand on currently.

The content consists of photographic collages of human and/or animal X-rays (I found a way to photograph the actual x-rays and retain the transparent look of the images) sometimes incorporated with Victorian woodcut etchings of insects, plant life and other subjects and juxtaposed with original nature images and/or photos I shot of cemetery and funerary statuary from across the US & Europe. I am also working on new pieces utilizing photos I took of animal bones, feathers and shells (all naturally found objects!). By doing this I can represent the underlying connection between all forms of nature and how life and death are so closely intertwined. There is a universal connection between all life forms; the microcosm reflects the macrocosm.

By utilizing current as well as historical imagery, the symbolism in my
photographic collages adds a sense of history, time and place to the pieces.
The photographs of the X-rays collaged with the other components detail our existence on earth and how it is both finite and infinite at the same time. I also enjoy the connection between the organic shapes of the human and animal
bones along with those of the other natural components in the pieces. This portrays the connected-ness among human beings with other life forms on Earth.
