Halosphaera viridis

Halosphaera viridis

Piece description from the artist

In graduate school at the Maryland Institute College of Art, I started an experimental technique in the color darkroom. I was researching light, specifically scientific light colors on a different color wheel than pigment paint. Cyan, Magenta and Yellow are the primary colors and I found how to create them and secondary colors with the color enlarger. This led me to years of investigation and as an abstract artist by nature, an inward view emerged. This series represents to me: new life, single celled organisms, clusters of plankton, diatoms, etc. My questions around being adopted were explored as I learned to create life in my fictional world. I used glass light sconces and started blowing my own glass for the purpose of photogramming my new cellular organisms. This work has been exhibited at the Paul Robeson Gallery in Newark, NJ, the Hunterdon Art Museum in Clinton, NJ, Gallery Imperato in Baltimore, MD, The Red Dot Art Fair in NYC and The Arts League of Washington in Washington, DC.
