Cornelia Hesse Honegger: Contemporary. I first came across this work in the Pitt Rivers and Natural History Museum in Oxford in 1997. I’m going through old scrapbooks at the moment and was reminded of them. I liked the repetitive nature, natural history illustration / fine art, multiple, deformities within the natural world, the impact of our being on the world around us. It’s beautiful work by a scientific illustrator / artist that poses questions about the role of the artist within museums, but also the environmentalist within the wider world.

What is uniform?

What is normal?
