Frances Bukovsky - #7
Hemosiderin Deposit (2021)
Pathology, the science of the causes and effects of diseases, takes a clinical approach to understanding why a person is sick. It uses methodologies like lab results and medical histories to reach a conclusion. Societal factors are largely excluded from a diagnosis unless they are tied to research. For Frances, the creative process must combine the analytical with the psycho-social for a complete picture. Her piece acts as a metaphor for this dichotomy, blending medical records with lab results into an abstract work of art.
