Philadelphia-based artist, Matthew Cox, brings together the unlikely pairing of embroidery and x-rays, juxtaposing the reality of the human body with brightly colored cartoon embellishments.

Cox's quirky and ghostly layered images have been featured at many national galleries from New Orleans to Chicago. His most recent collection is "Heartthrobs, Avatars and Street Paper," adds iconic characters to chest x-rays.

Check out more of those images below plus a few new floral works. Click here to see Matthew Cox's website.
