In response to her experiences of studying anatomy textbooks, analyzing brain tissue under laboratory microscopes and witnessing thirteen-hour-long surgeries, Taryn Möller Nicoll's artwork considers the human body and that which it represents: an unmatched system, a fractured container, and the most ancient and mysterious of architectures. By merging precise illustrations of surgical procedures, undulating brushstrokes and collage, Nicoll's pieces present the literal tearing apart and rebuilding of biological elements as a reference to the timeless design and transformative capabilities of the human body.
