Lisa Nilsson's "Connective Tissue"
- For anatomical work, Nilsson limits herself to 12 different colors, introducing other tones only sparingly.
- The show combines flat specimen-style boxes with standing cameos.
- Nilsson was inspired by early anatomy photographs from Christian Braune and Eugène-Louis Doyen.
- This piece shows a human torso in cross-section.
- The pink of the brain is actually a combination of pink, ivory, and tan paper, to get what Nilsson calls "that fleshy not-quite-pink."
- Fat deposits are represented by tight coils of yellow-tan paper.
- To cover the glass boxes, Nilsson repurposed old hardcover book binding.
- Larger muscle structures get more intricate shading, moving between light pinks and deeper wine-tinged reds.
