An exhibit of abstract paintings by Betsy Stewart MN’05 that examines microscopic, mutually dependent life systems found in pond water was shown in early December at the Center for Great Apes Endangered exhibition at the Miami Club Rum Distillery.
The exhibit was a venue for the prestigious Art Basel Miami 2012, which the Miami Herald described as “the largest contemporary art fair in the United States.”
An article on the monochrome effects Web site entitled “ENDANGERED,” features Stewart and her exhibit
The article quotes her: “In my new series, ‘Biocriticals’, I am interested in creating an ambiguity between micro and macro: what is happening in microscopic water as well as events in the cosmos. If I am successful, my viewers will determine for themselves whether they are seeing particles/matter through a microscope or through a telescope.”
She describes the exhibit from December 5 through the 9 at Miami Club Rum Distillery as “a piece from each of four different series that share a common theme. I examine microscopic, mutually dependent life systems found in pond water. Giving these images a presence speaks to our fragile position in the cosmos.”
