About the artist:
Patricia Massel is a second-year medical student at the University of British Columbia in Canada. "I try to find time amid my studies to keep creating artwork."
About the artwork:
"This piece was inspired by electron microscopy images of the cells within the kidney. The patterns of tiny marks in this linoleum-cut print portray a sophisticated and somewhat alien world within our own living bodies. I hope that by showing the amazing complexity of living beings, my work will provoke in viewers a sense of curiosity and wonder."
