I bought a book showing the different ways in which the inside of the body can be viewed, for example, dyes, and x rays. The photographs were like abstract paintings! From these, I have done 4 pieces, so far, and intend to make more.
I used a combination of paint on a canvas and embroidery to develop the colours and textures, using the layered, stitched and slash technique plus embroidered threads to give a more 3D effect.
