Whilst undergoing surgery, Susan Aldworth realized how she can use her skills as an artist to show the hidden beauty of our minds.

Susan Aldworth is an artist interested in questions of human identity. She is an experimental printmaker and filmmaker referencing philosophy, medicine, and neuroscience in her work.
Through her investigations into consciousness, dementia, schizophrenia, sleep and epilepsy, Aldworth has developed a particular interest in expanding notions of contemporary portraiture. Aldworth has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally and her work is held in many public and permanent collections including the V&A, British Museum, Fitzwilliam Museum and Wellcome Collection.
