These paintings are primarily based on biological structures and topographical maps. Fascinated by the intricate patterns and configurations of microorganisms, and in the construction and formation of urban and natural landscapes, I explore the hidden worlds of microsystems, and the structure of our geography and architecture from a bird’s eye perspective in this body of work. These images are a two-dimensional reconciliation of my own visual vocabulary with found images, where germs are landscapes and cities exist in cells.

Hi, Marissa

Sometime I go on this blind tour of blogs under blogspot, by just pressing the >>next blog.
I appreciate visual art, and myself an independent film maker, I teach film and design in Dubai, UAE.
I was just wondering - what inspires you? And what is this style of art called?
