Michal Gavish Artist Statement

"My fascination with science goes back to my former research work, observing the beauty of the microscopic world that is hidden from the naked eye. For me, viruses, proteins, and crystals aren’t abstractions—they are figures, objects and nano-scale landscapes. Captivated by these minute shapes, I interpret them in their intricate environments, which inform scientists' communal imagination. 

I use my scientific training to create new visual perspective and to maintain ongoing collaborations with practicing biologists and chemists. Using innovative painting techniques, I interpret visual research data into paintings and soft installations.I sometimes draw and at other times develop three-dimensional works by layering original chemical paint-combinations onto translucent fabric and fragile paper. The resulting works give presence to the microscopic living formations which we know exist but can hardly imagine.
