Anatomical cross-sections of human body made from paper.
Lisa Nilsson has been working in the art industry from long. She loves to work on intricate complex pieces of art. Her recent work of quilling to produce anatomical cross sections of human body is fascinating to say the least.
Quilling which is also known as paper filigree involves the use of layers of paper which are then rolled, glued and folded together. The paper is put in the required structural form so as to form the right shape.
Lisa Nelson was impressed by previous work from different artists using the quilling technique. Quilling was first practiced by nuns and monks who made artistic use of the gilded edges of old bibles. In the late 80’s home staying women with lots of time on their hand practiced it to pursue their artsy passions.
She finds the ability to work with paper and tissue to create the densely squished landscape of internal human body’s cross section a fulfillment of her artistic fantasy.
Although for us human body remains an enigma, but these cross sections will fascinate and attract both doctors and artists. Thank you Lisa for the great work.
