“See through skin”, an exhibition of work by Federica Lucia Vinella, is on display at the Art and Design Library until 29 December.
See through skin is the first pyrography exhibition by the Italian artist Federica Lucia Vinella. The artworks are all inspired by the human anatomy, and display body parts analytically portrayed and vivisected.
Most of the images are taken from Victorian medical illustrations where vessels, bones and skin are accurately exposed and analysed. The artist finds within the anatomy of the body a way to convey her interest in the depths of the human existence, that digs deep the surface of what is daily experienced.
All the pieces displayed are executed in pyrography on birch panels.
Federica studied Sculpture at the Academies of Venice, Warsaw and Milan, where she graduated in 2011. Currently she lives in Edinburgh and studies at the Academy of Realist Art.
