For a long time, my work has explored genetic engineering through a blending of science fiction and reality; combining and juxtaposing literary fantasies with scientific possibilities.
Searching the internet, images of cloned animals and human medical stem cell research sit alongside photo shopped imaginings of hybridised dysfunctional animals. This melting pot of truth and lies reminds me of medieval printed bestiaries of imagined and real animals presented for examination and fascination.
This body of work explores an imagined representation of human organ cultivation and stem cell experiments.
All works are screen-printed and painted on panels, 2016.
