Lisa Temple-Cox's current research interests explore the aesthetics and symbolism of the medical museum with a focus upon the anatomical. It examines our own subjective experiences and perceptions of the body in life and death using a range of media, including large-scale immersive drawing, assemblage, and installation. Her practice embraces both specimens of human anatomy - usually drawn in situ in the museum or museum stores - and natural sciences, and she often works from her own collections of animal and human remains. She has developed her professional practice as both visual artist and researcher over the past 25 years. During this time she has been commissioned by both public organisations and private individuals making artwork for institutions as varied as schools, hospitals, museums, libraries, and even public conveniences. She has exhibited widely, is a practised speaker and workshop leader, and has undertaken a number of artist residencies in Europe and the USA.
