micro to macro

The human eye can observe many things, but what it could not see was either deemed as imagination, mythology or nonexistent; until the microscope. This series of paintings  investigates the view from a microscope. Images of wood cells, cross sections of trees, seed pods, pollen, and even everyday and not so everyday drugs. These micro views all have a beauty that is not usually seen by any but the chemist. The Gulliver’s Orb’s Triptych  has three views ; through the microscopic of wood cells, a naked eye view of an eye and lastly a macroscopic view of earth from outer space in landsat photography. Much like Gulliver in his travels, his size  & proportion to all around him changed with each adventure.
