Lexi Ames, a very talented student of biology and studio art at Lawrence University (USA), creates magnificent drawings inspired by biology, scientific experiments, anatomy and medical procedures. Using pen and paper she creates elegant textures and shadings to give much of her work an enchanting Victorian-esque aesthetic atmosphere, which culminates in her Pseudo-Mysticism series.
Moreover, her personal view on the interrelation between science and art embodied in her work is suitably eloquent:
“The cold, analytical side of science and meticulous reason are transformed into something mysterious and beautiful when re-imagined by artistic intent. It is my goal to express the intricacy and grotesque magnificence of the natural world, including human and animal bodies in life and rot, so that they can be seen as both art and biology.”
