The Royal Astrocyte, 2016 – SOLD
Framed – 19″ x 19″
I have always been attracted to symmetry, and while cells in culture are almost never symmetrical, I wanted this artwork to fit into a square frame, just like the majority of pictures we take under a confocal microscope. However, keeping with my theme of science reaching beyond its limits, this cell was not constrained by its frame and extended its processes outward, to sense the world beyond its immediate reach.
“When I received this piece of art I was at awe. The photo did not do it justice. It is beautiful. I love the concept of science and art. It’s unique and I can’t wait to show it off to my family and friends. I’m an art lover and feel so proud to own this piece.”– Sheila Borges
