Pathology on Canvas
A curation of reader artwork on a single, uniting subject: Pathology.
Bibiana Campos Seijo, George Francis Lee, Georgia Hulme | | Gallery
Can you believe it’s been eight years since we first asked the pathology and laboratory medicine community to contribute to our inaugural image issue? And yet, in our octennial year, we’ve never had more creative, eye-catching, and surprising submissions to sift through.
For 2023, we are proud to feature a plethora of pieces in a variety of mediums – from abstract canvases dripping with H&E splendor to hand drawn illustrations that show off the sensorial experiences of grossing.
We are always impressed by the amazing talent that resides within pathology and laboratory medicine. But know that this gallery is but only a small snapshot – a single brushstroke on the giant canvas of this community’s skill and creativity.
