Gerald Peters Gallery and Peters Projects, in association with The New Mexico Spatiotemporal Modeling Center (STMC) and Los Alamos National Laboratories, is pleased to present a curated contemporary invitational art exhibition, Spectrum, for March 2016 at Peters Projects, Santa Fe, NM. The exhibition’s focus is on works created by artists who are known for the integration of science in their art practice.
Expanding on the annual STMC event, The Art of Systems Biology and Nanoscience, the exhibition includes lectures and workshops promoting the application of the physical sciences and mathematics to solve complex problems in human biology. The intent of this show is to broaden the discussion of the ever increasing intersection between art and science while providing a window into the advanced microscopy, nanoscale engineering and computer simulations used and applied at the STMC.
Works of art by renowned regional and national artists Suzanne Anker, Adam Belt, Julia Buntaine, Eric Garduño, Brian Knep, Lee Montgomery, Charles Ross and Todd Siler will be exhibited alongside microscopy images from UNM and LANL scientists.
These 9 artists, many of whom hold advanced degrees in scientific fields, apply scientific principles and technology in their cutting edge works of art in a variety of media; painting, photography, video, sculpture, and installation.
Todd Siler, invited as the featured artist, will exhibit a number of works, including a selection from NanoWorld which premiered at The Amory Show in 2014. Siler’s metaphorical drawings, conceptual paintings, and symbolic sculpture and art installations explorewhat nature makes and what we make of nature. These artworks are inspired by the pioneer Nanochemist Geoffrey Ozin and his Solar Fuels Team at the University of Toronto who are researching and developing Nanoscience solutions to global challenges such as climate change.
