Archive > Michelle Dixon, Exquisite Corpus

Opening Event on 28 November from 6pm - 9pm

Exhibition runs from 6pm, 28 November - 3pm, 11 December 2014

Michelle Dixon body of work Exquisite Corpus juxtaposes the baroque-esque decadence of corpse adorned treasures with the abstraction of anatomical form. The adorned treasures painted onto bones and organs question materialism versus naturalism in the modern age. Michelle blurs the lines between what is considered beauty and preconceived notions of illness. With exquisite detail these works draw the viewer into a narrative to contemplate belief systems around what it means to be honored in human society.
