Anna Larsson is a graphic designer who creates clean, bold and perfectly simplistic work. I suppose the more you look, the more it becomes that her roots are deeply Swedish. When I first saw the print below, I immediately wanted to spend time with it.
When I first started looking at the print, I thought it was a take on the Rorschach Inkblot Test. And maybe, in some ways, it is. But it wasn't until I saw more of the individual figures from the series on their own (and her helpful names, like 'Pelvis' and 'Vertebrae') that I understood what it was I was actually seeing. Yup, them's bones.
Somehow, Anna takes the harsh medical perspective out of these images and instead offers a beautiful vision of all the parts that make us work. For someone who gets woozy at the thought of doctors, I could spend hours looking at these prints. You can see all of Anna's work on her website.
