There seems to be a rising trend in the interest of anatomy, especially in art. As a fan of Biology, I am not complaining about this trend and I highly encourage it. I have a large amount respect for the artist who toils for hours with small pieces of paper, shaping them to match the anatomy of organisms.
These incredibly detailed anatomical cross sections are the latest in Lisa Nilsson’s paper filigree “Tissue Series.” The artworks are made out of rolled paper and gilt edges from old books, in a technique also known as quilling. Her work is on display at the Boston University Art Gallery through March 31, 2013. We first posted about Nilsson’s anatomical paper filigree last year.
