Description

"The inspiration for Pathological Beauty came to me while I was looking at a Pathology textbook. The pictures of the various diseases under the microscope looked so incredibly beautiful that it was hard to believe they were deadly. To underscore this idea, I combined pieces of text and images from the actual book along with a Xerox copy of one of my own charcoal drawings of a male body."
