In the path of Leonardo da Vinci: Where art and science collide

By Claudia Rousseau

Among the other artists represented here, the drawings of Laura Ferguson are among the most striking. Ferguson is currently the artist-in-residence at the NYU School of Medicine where she draws from bones and cadaver dissections in the Anatomy Lab, as well as working with radiology images in 3D Imaging. Her drawings recall the delicacy and passion of Leonardo, as well as his fascination with the body’s visual complexity, its inherent beauty, and its connection to the processes and patterns of nature. Her drawings, like “Dark Twisting Figure” and “Watery Blue-Red Figure” are often layered with a density that draws the viewer and keeps him looking. Grounded in science, her work is imbued with a spirit that can be compared to the great Renaissance master.
