BEAUTY IN THE BEAST- LIVING THE PANDEMICposted by Lorraine Lerman
“Beauty in the Beast” Images of floating galaxies of coronavirus molecules in translucent colors shot with ultra sensitive electron microscopes inspired this series. By March 2020, Covid-19 was the news in the whole world, and it became the focus of my artwork with an eye to color, shape, and design and a blind eye to the shattering effects of this “Beast”. The images of Covid-19 are sketched and painted in gouache, then translated into clay monoprints. The embroidery hoops imitate seeing the virus through the eye of an electron microscope.
