—My work explores perceptions of beauty and horror, comfort and discomfort. I use anatomical and medical imagery as a point of departure to explore these dualities and our ambivalence towards the human body. This juxtaposition creates a response that fluctuates between seduction and repulsion, comfort and alienation.— Laura Splan is a New York based mixed media artist.
