Danielle Kao is a Trinity alumni that graduated in 2018 with a degree in Computer Science and Art. Danielle currently resides in San Antonio as a software developer but her passions still take root in the arts.
In her body of work, Danielle depicts gore and decay overlayed on the human body. These images are presented in a passive and non hostile way in an attempt to find beauty and calmness in things we might otherwise find uncomfortable or frightening.
This set of prints presents an unbiased and pseudo-scientific study of the loss of the individual. The figures depicted show no emotion, with their features hidden and backs turned to the viewer. The tops of their skulls are cut clean off, but where gore should be is instead hypnotic swirls.
Fig. 1 is a lithography print; Exhibit 1A. is a copper plate etching on printing paper.
