About the event

SUSAN ALDWORTH: THE PORTRAIT ANATOMISEDProduced as part of a commission for Guy’s and St. Thomas’s Hospital in Westminster, the portraits depict three individuals with epilepsy, a condition that affects one in every 100 people in the UK.  Medical imaging techniques that are part of a programme of treatment, such as electroencephalograms (EEGs), convey unique information about a person and Aldworth appropriates these and other forms of scientific imagery in her innovative printmaking process. Using scans or illustrations from medical textbooks with photographs and expressive freehand or imprint marks, she asks how both sorts of imagery evoke a personality; how they correspond or contrast with a person’s sense of themselves.The exhibtion will also include a series of prints of lenticulars.
