Lynda Ater: Image Building

At Blackfish Gallery

Thu, Oct 05 to Sat, Oct 28

show

First Thursday, October 5 | 6 pm – 9 pm

A scientist and artist by education and sensibility, Lynda Ater makes work that combines abstracted cancer cell images with the dynamics of color interaction.

At her day job she used a microscope to examine cell samples from patients for signs of cancer. Ater found the abnormal cells visually fascinating, having variable shapes both subtle and extreme. By taking these microscopic forms out of the lab and presenting them in paint on canvas, she gives them new life, highlighting playfulness and intrigue instead of sickness and dread.

Using shapes, contours and patterns found in the plant and built worlds, guest artist Sue Friesz draws, paints and sculpts works that explore the tension between these two modalities.

In Nature Reconstructed, plants are the primary vehicle for the composition of each work. The organic subject matter is counterbalanced with precision and stylization of execution, referencing the mechanics of the built world.
