Cat O’Neil has an extraordinary ability to illustrate complex or difficult ideas without losing the warmth and charm needed to engage. This recent image formed part of a series for the Wellcome Collection for their web-based ‘stories’ platform. The brief was to create images based on writings by researcher and environmentalist, Nataly Allasi Canaleson. These powerful, multifarious texts needed an intellectual approach and careful image research. As ever, Cat was more than up to the challenge with these gorgeous cut-outs.
