Anicka Vrana-Godwin, Study the Ten Foot Woman (green) detail, oil, 2012. Jaclyne Grimoldby, Untitled, serigraph, 2012

The artists use anatomical study as a foundation for exploring and representing psychological and physical experiences. Grimoldby’s work focuses on the body’s capacity for deterioration and the impact of mental processes on the physicality of our human experience. She integrates anatomical studies with drawings of portraits and plants to comment on the relationship between these elements of life. Vrana-Godwin’s work incorporates subtle anatomical references layered with images of the figure in abstracted patterned space.
