Sean Caulfield: Found Anatomies

November 19 - December 10

Caulfield initiated his recent series of mixed media works in the Found Anatomies series by drawing on imagery from Andreas Vesalius’s well know 16th-centruy anatomy work, De Humani Corporis Fabrica Libri Septem (On the Fabric of the Human Body). These anatomical references, which at times are clear and at other times are obscured with layers of printing or plate work, are paired with organic and architectural forms within veiled and abstracted spaces. In this way, the work attempts to point to the interconnections which exist within the fabric of all ecosystems, as well as to the difficulty of trying to capture this complexity within any knowledge system. Likewise, the figurative elements within the prints are interwoven with biological/botanical forms in a state of metamorphosis, suggesting cyclical processes of both decay and regeneration.
