Anne Harris

A quote from the above website about Harris' work, 
"Curator Allison Ferris wrote in her 2003 essay Without Likeness, “The pellucid skin of her shoulders, arms, hands, and thighs recedes into the background of the paintings. The diffusive background, in turn, is skin-like and joins almost seamlessly with her body. The ambiguous boundaries between the subject and the background suggest that the qualities of Harris’s body extend to the whole canvas. Her body is, in a sense, the painting.”"

Skin's a very morbid object when placed in places not on top of our skin.
