Portraiture in Glass by Artist Angela Palmer

by Jane KenoyerPosted on

Subject matter depicting brains, cow sculls, and pig heads sounds rather disturbing, however artist Angela Palmer creates elemental beauty out of unusual imagery. To make her body of work entitled Life Lines she engraved details from MRI and CT scans onto multiple sheets of glass. By layering the pieces of glass together she both separates and unifies these beautiful three dimensional line drawings.The human heads in this collection are self portraits and the other forms depict her interest in the anatomy animals.
