Flora and Skulls

Emily Nolan is a painter from Toronto, ON. "Biology and the inner workings of living bodies fascinate Emily Nolan and provide recurring themes in her work. Juxtaposing elements of decaying human life with organic flora and fauna filled with vibrancy, colour, and potential, Emily delves into the cycle of life from birth to death, deterioration to regeneration. Her epoxy-coated images offer luscious, candy-coated memento mori that draw from both traditional and contemporary culture." I'm always drawn to artwork that blends nature and anatomy. Emily's work has vibrant flora that follows the shape of the skull. I'm sure these are something you'd have to see in person to fully enjoy the depth of colors.
