Gel Jamlang’s Experiments with Anatomy

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

In her paintings, Baltimore-based artist Gel Jamlang doesn’t present the human anatomy as a solid unit, but rather a composite of parts that can be deconstructed and put back together again. Her work could be described as mutant portraiture — skulls are screwed open, throats are slit and eyeballs are displaced. But the result is hardly morbid. Instead, Jamlang opts for a bubblegum-colored palette and ’60s-inspired, illustrative feel, making these rearranged faces more psychedelic than visceral. Take a look at some of the works below, images courtesy of Gel Jamlang.
