art review; the haunting terrain between creation and science - frosted mylar
Month, more than 2005 write notes for the first time after Da Vinci on 500--
Writing code backwards because of fear of plagiarism-
From astronomy and physics to geography, optics and anatomy, science remains a source of curiosity and inspiration for artists.
However, when Leonardo thought his graffiti was scientific ---
In fact, there are some people, in particular his artwork and his observation of optics, and some artists today think that their work is neither strictly scientific nor artistic.
They walk between disciplines on foggy terrain, building an intuitive and inviting connection.
The "wet lab: a new connection between art and science" at the University of Holy Heart's contemporary art gallery is one of the latest surveys in this fascinating area.
It brings together the works of several artists, connecting newcomers with others who are better known in art. science scene.
All of this belongs to WetLab, a New York-based collective of artists that began promoting dialogue between artists and scientists in 2003.
For the benefit of laymen, scientists call it laboratories where life or experimental work is carried out.
This is where the tubes are stored, or where biologists examine and dissect the animals as part of the experiment.
It is the place where science is created, so it is related to art.
The Heart Gallery is just a corridor. -
What the audience needs to know before walking in the snow.
But the trip is worth it because many of the work cleverly imitates the desire to promote human efforts and the scientific goals that point to the infinite diversity of nature.
The advertising work is also a comment on the artist's concept as an alchemist or creator, who makes things from scratch.
The best art in the exhibition, both entertainment and education, is often the most mysterious.
Justin Cooper's light video stills from a microscope-
Study using a microscope-
Capture Red, spotted, subatomic landscapes with crimsoncolored skies.
Their beauty is dazzling
They also have liquid on them.
Black and white photos of natural objects taken by Ariel Ruiz I Altalba, such as eggs placed on seed pods, dandelion, flower arrangement is uneven, but it is better to catch mysterious things, sometimes, the beauty of nature is dumbfounded.
They also have a painful intimacy, reminiscent of Edward Weston's most memorable still life, especially his 1930 muscular photoslooking pepper.
Mark Kessell offers four dark, contemplative paints-one of the biggest surprises of the show
Print the photos on the cotton paper of hunchback characters and lonely faces-
These images seem to express melancholy.
The ink penetrated into the rag paper and washed off the subjects, giving the image a muddy, aging and often textured look.
It's like we're looking at ghosts, or sudden memories.
Flashing in my mind.
This is also the least obvious science. oriented.

Susan Ann and Alan K.
Levy seems to be inspired most directly by contemporary science and scientific methods. Ms.
Levi's layers of evolution (2003-4)
It's an avant-garde combination of tape, paint and paper printing, half mixed
Mature ideas about evolution and geology.
This reminds me of Francis Galton's experiment in youics, the science of improving the human population by controlling reproduction. Ms.
Anker prefers the strict, gorgeous silk of the classification
She screened rows of butterflies, seahorses and other creatures onto the frosted medlar she hung on the wall.
There are also some sad things on them.
There is very little information to help the audience interpret her art, so I think it has to do with the way science tries to classify and sort nature.
Problems encountered by advertising Reading Ladies
Anker's art works well for all the works here-
Each piece will be served well by at least a small wall label explaining exactly what the artist is doing and how it relates to the theme of the exhibition. (
There is a modest catalogue, but it does not contain anything about art. )
This will also help students of the Sacred Heart, who will probably be the main body of visitors to the exhibition.
