Highly magnified images produced by the electron microscope are often beautiful and mysterious visual records of ‘normally unseen’ realms. Initially, I used black and white micrographs as a direct source for creating works of painterly structures in an ambiguous space. More recently, as a result of continued explorations and experimentation, and the desire to create non-objective abstract works, I, rather unintentionally, arrived at compositions that reminded me of similar microscopic views. These micrographic impressions may be considered a melding of the botanical and the biological, the visible and the invisible, the personal and the impersonal, image-making randomness and systematic technique, and of art and technology.
