Drawing inspiration from the human cell
Art-science collaboration results in stunning screen prints
Visual Inspirations from the Human Cell, an exhibition of screen prints by Artist Judith Devons, is currently on display in the main reception area of Leicester Royal Infirmary's Balmoral Building. The result of a unique art-science collaboration between Judith Devons and her scientist husband Professor Gerry Cohen, Deputy Director of the Medical Research Council's Toxicology Unit at the University of Leicester, these stunning works of art are attracting considerable interest.
"We work in very different spheres", says Judith. "I am married to a scientist whose complex work I don't understand, and who admits to confusion over the meaning of most of my conceptual art. Now we've managed to bring these worlds together."
Professor Cohen adds, "All at the MRC are delighted at the way Judith's exhibition has raised our profile in the public eye. It has been particularly appropriate that her work has been sited in a hospital, since our research into the mechanisms of cell malfunction and death has enormous long-term implications in understanding and curing neuro-degenerative diseases, cancer and the results of exposure to toxic substances."
