Cells by Laura Katherine McMillan
McMillan on her project:
I began this series of embroideries as a way to fuse my background studies in anatomy and kinesiology with my passion for textile art. Revisiting old text books brought back not just information I would have to memorize for its function but a wealth of beautiful imagery. I began to see the cells as a series of intricate textures and shapes.
Creating this series made me think about how our view of something as merely functional can overshadow its inherent beauty.
