Anatomical inspired drawings & Installations

E J Lance has a lifelong fascination with anatomy, whether it is human, animal or botanical. Often the work is surreal, blending  these elements together with a mix of science fiction and museum collections fused in. The work sometimes questions the concept of being a human, sometimes it is a pure exploration of the patterns found in universal anatomy, it is always multi layered and highly detailed. Her  unusual anatomical drawings have been part of national exhibitions, been featured in the Queens Gallery, Buckingham Palace and are in the permanent collections of a number of Museums, NHS Trusts and Arts organisations. Her current anatomical project is : Visual Literacy: Seeing the Skin, a project which used medical collections to explore if observing the skin creatively can enhance clinical observations of the skin. This is part of the UHDB Medical Museum Project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Anatomical workshops:

She works with Hospitals, Museums and Galleries using unusual drawing approaches to explore unusual aspects of anatomy. She also delivers accessible anatomical through drawing workshops suitable for people of all ages. The Museums and collections  she has worked with to design  anatomy workshops have included: the Royal College of Physicans' Museum, the Royal Collection, Derby Museums & Art Gallery and Compton Verney for the : Francis Bacon: A retrospective exhibition.
