Statement:
Artists often depict themes drawn from our experiences of the world. As a practicing scientist I've created a large number of images for a scientific context: images that were themselves data, images of data, images as illustrations of data and hypotheses, and images serving as guides to complex concepts buit up from data and hypotheses. These technical images are very different from the illustrations and images of everdyay things. Rather than a direct depiction, technical images must often serve as visual similes to data and hypotheses, and as visual metaphors for complex and often highly abstract concepts.

Imagery as similes or metaphors for abstract technical concepts is incorporated into many of my paintings. Often my paintings are abstractions and impressions of things I've seen molecules do, or paintings with rhythmic patterns reminiscent and inspired by theoretical concepts underlying my experiments. Lately I've been exploring ideas of cooperativity and connectivity; emergent phenomena, percolation, and other ideas from contemporary Soft Matter Physics, Biocomplexity and Ecology, Nanoscience, and Particle Physics. My art will often take key elements of complex scientific ideas and alter their context to one of artistic expression. This allows the works to simultaneously comment on the emotional content of scientific experience, and on the scientist's relationship to imagery and representation of complex abstract concepts.

Short Bio
Dr. Valluzzi holds BS's in Materials Science (3) and in Humanities (21.6 - Music composition) with a minor in Visual Studies from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and a PhD in Polymer Science from the University of Massachusetts Amherst. While Dr. Valluzzi is better known for her work in protein biophysics and bionanotechnology, she has always pursued her love of art. She studied painting at the Museum of Fine Arts Museum School in Boston while simultaneously pursuing her degrees at MIT. The balance of her artistic training has been self-taught, through experiments with paint and painting materials and various lessons from her father, who was also a painter.

A number of her original pieces have been sold into private collections (email for a listing), and she has shown in juried, non-juried, and ad-hoc shows for over two decades.
