Event Description

Join us on June 2nd from 6-9pm for the opening reception to Practical Nursing, a solo exhibition featuring Karin Stothart.

“My prints explore the aesthetics of vulnerability and fear though the transformation of diagrams from medical textbooks and first aid manuals. Framing the figure in a medical context allows me to distinguish the physical body from the individual, enabling me to explore emotions in a two-dimensional framework. Through the use of medical diagrams I present the body as an object, illustrating the loss of physical control that a patient experiences in a medical setting. The sexual tone of the images that the material and intimate environment evoke contrasts the sterility of the clinical imagery. This contrast emphasizes the perceived disparity between surgery and sexual intimacy, addressing the true nature of emotional vulnerability and physical intimacy.”


-K. Stothart
