Seeing the Skin: Studies from Visual Literacy Workshops
New Project with Nottingham University Medical School & Derby Museums
Spring 2021 saw the beginnings of a new project looking at the treatment of skin in fine art collections with a view to expanding clinical practitioners observation. Focusing on The Joseph Wright Collection in particular, the project will explore and experiment, using drawing approaches to rethink the way human skin and anatomy can be observed.
It is an honour to be able to say the Royal College of Physicians Museum are involved with this Air Arts project. The astonishing collection of anatomical tables in addition to other objects will be the focus of new workshops with medical students in 2023. Alongside the works of Joseph Wright and the UHDB Medical Museum collection, their collections will inspired new large scale works which I will create for a forthcoming exhibition in 2024/2025, details to follow.
