Internal Landscape I: Small Intestine

This painting is an abstract representation of the Villi in the Small Intestine, in vibrant oranges, teals, greens, magentas, and violets. The human body is creative and miraculous landscape, and I created this painting to show the complexity and childish awe that the human body inspires.

Internal Landscape IV: Alveoli

This painting is an abstract representation of the Alveoli, in reds, pinks, and scarlets on black paper. The lung is a dark shadow behind the alveoli, making the warm colors dynamic as they organically move around the painting.
