Artists, and medical artists in particular, have always incorporated in their work the various symbols of death. Nevertheless they consider their work to be a celebration of life and a preservation of something beautiful. The work presented in this book is an ongoing research and investigation by scientists and artists into the fascinating subject of mortality. Plants, bugs, birds, animals and people, all are equal in mortality. Medical and scientific artists have the desire to piece the world together and to make sense of our fractured reality.They use the power of representational drawing. To draw is to see. Sometimes the question is answered when the work is finished, at other times the finished work is only another point of departure.
