This is an example of how my research has crept its way into my artwork. The dark red splatter seen in this piece is from a stain that is used in scientific research called alizarin red, which is mainly used to identify bone deposits in cell culture. The excess stain is usually removed off the cells to reveal the bone deposits in culture, which would stain bright orange. However the stains on this piece were left to dry, giving this maxilla a beautifully rich red background a few hours later.
