Hugh Turvey originally trained as a designer and art director, until, in 1996, he discovered a love for a somewhat unconventional medium. Upon being requested to X-ray a human skull for a friend’s album cover, he discovered that, when it came to many commonplace items, beauty is not skin deep, but rather beauty is more abstract from within. From then on, his fascination with X-ray art merely grew, as he began to use colored X-rays on any item he could think of. Turvey has said,
I’m driven by my curiosity. It’s about discovering the world around us. As a kid I would take things apart to see what was inside and how they worked. I have an insane curiosity for how things work. X-ray gives me a way to get that insight and turn it into art.
In this particular collection, Turvey X-rayed flowers, such as:
- Stargazer lilies
- Hyacinths (at various stages of development)
