Camila Carlow 

is a Guatemalan-born artist based in Bristol, England.

She works in a range of mediums, from fine art painting and photography, and as a cinematographer for video production.

She currently spends her time marketing her artwork and freelancing as a photographer and cinematographer for short film productions and corporate video productions.

“This work invites the viewer to regard our vital structures as beautiful living organisms, and to contemplate the miraculous work taking place inside our bodies, even in this very moment,” says Carlow.

For the project, she transformed a handful of normally grotesque, bloody organs into an array of greenery and beautiful wild blossoms, collected and photographed in Bristol

Artist statement

The most fascinating and intricate of biological structures, yet we rarely pay heed to the organs inside our body. Regardless of whether we fill ourselves with toxins or nourishing food, whether we exercise or not – our organs sustain us, working away effortlessly and unnoticed.

In a similar way, plants flourishing in the urban environment are a testament to nature’s indifference to our goings on. They grow out of the sides of buildings, in brick walls and between the cracks in concrete, despite of the traffic and pollution.
