"It is always intriguing to see different ways anatomy is used as subject matter in art, so it was great to see work from figurative artist Geoffrey Harrison... he explores the function of organs such as the brain and intestines... I found these artworks to be quite playful and very much a paradox – they appear to be able to live off and feed back into themselves." - Claire Jones, http://www.claire-jones.com/blog/# Apr 2011
