I have always admired the work of Anne Wilson whose work focuses heavily on biological matter. One of my favourite pieces of hers is typologies. Made with numerous textile/ craft processes.
This beautiful depiction of what might otherwise be seen as quite repulsive and unusual subject matter is stunning. I love the intricacy, the crafting of the piece, the link back to the traditions of textile techniques and the bold contrast between the black of the thread and the white of the board. This emphasizes the fundamentals in science, unlike art, it is either right or wrong.
Using cropped areas of magnified images of biological matter, i have played around with ways of repeating and manipulating the original unit to create a good design. I have only done a few so far...
