Betsy Stewart: Microscopic Cosmos

DATE
Sat, Jun 7, 2014
through Sat, Jun 28, 2014
DETAILS

Tuesday through Saturday 10am - 6pm

Betsy Stewart’s paintings examine the biodiversity in pond water encouraging the viewer to consider the unseen. Using microscopic imagery from water sources, Stewart’s paintings inflict a sense of interconnectedness. In giving the mutually dependent life systems found in pond water a visual presence, referencing both the micro and macro elements of the universe, Betsy reveals the fragility of our position in the cosmos. Stewart's new series of work titled “Biocriticals” considers the ambiguity between the minute and the infinite. She began experimenting with the idea that many of the same shapes existed in the solar system as well as in microscopic water samples. Stewart is featured in public collections both nationally and internationally.
