Purify (Darkness to Light)

My fascination with the human figure also extends to its underlying components--the skeleton, organs, organ systems, and musculature. I really like looking through anatomy textbooks; it is easy to see the beauty of all that lies under our skin. I then combine that with surrealistic elements--like changing the size of organs in relation to other organs or adding elements that would never exist inside one's body, such as flowers--to tell a story: in this case, of things that are wild, with a certain roughness to them, seeking light where there is none.
