Astrocytes Microbiology Landscapes Series
Painting - Collage And Oil Paint On Canvas
Astrocytes are brain cells with starburst-like, long, expanding connections, named so because they reminded people of stars. They help structure the brain and spinal cord, are present in the retina and optic nerves, are involved with the chemical and neurotransmitter reactions which form our flashing thoughts..... and are not completely understood. I love this as a beginning for visual metaphors and meditations. The Microbiology Landscapes Series is a set of small paintings illustrating ideas of very small and very powerful interiors of our bodies. The Series have been on display in galleries in New York City and Seattle, WA.
