A conversation about the intersection between medicine and the arts.
Tuesday, June 13, 2006
Talk about avoidance strategies. I should be finishing my chapter and here I am blogging. This review of Sharon Ellis' exhibition in LA describes her work as 'art asthma'. The remark, of course, is not to be taken literally. Yet, as a non-medic, even I can see similarities between the whispy, breathless shapes in the image above and an image of the airways of the human lungs. Art asthma, maybe, but a breath of fresh air to the imagination.
