Long View Study #5

Back in March I posted a sketchbook page of imagined Antarctic life forms. Here’s a new generation of undiscovered microorganisms with added whimsy. They remind me of the inadvertently comical Myxosporea I found in an otherwise serious Crary Library book
here, fourth image down.

This study was created in graphite and cut paper (using mostly found and recycled stock
in keeping with the project’s theme) mounted on a gessoed 8″ x 8″ x 2″ wood panel.

I’m happy to announce its inclusion in CUTTERS: An Exhibition of International Collage curated by James Gallagher, opening Friday October 16 at Cinders Gallery in Brooklyn.
