6 February – 23 February 2008: Justine Barlow – LAYERS


Gallery 2

In LAYERS, Justine Barlow explores the control and investigation of functions within the human body; from the external to the internal.

Several beautifully painted life-sized torsos of skin, skeleton and organ layers are encased in Perspex in a 3 dimensional installation. These watercolours combine the influences of medical illustration and portraiture to explore the mechanistic nature of the human body that is beyond our immediate reach.

Justine Barlow is a recent graduate of the Victorian College of the Arts.
