This work is only available unframed, but Edith can recommend a framing style on request.


Edith says: "The bones are painted from a human skeleton which my grandmother bought (when that was legal) for medical reference. Images of bones obviously evoke death, but their forms are determined by their function to support life. I tried to keep this tension in mind when painting them.


"It was particularly difficult to find a way to paint a skull which didn't look like a stereotypical, Camden-Market-memento-mori type image. In the end I painted its underside and then chucked water over the whole thing. I think it worked."
