Check it out!
I never get a chance to present this image, but I based the painting two posts before on it. Its an electron micrograph of the centrosome (the two little circles) in a nuclear invagination with electron dense endosomes surrounding it. It is pretty nerdy but I also think its a beautiful image.
She keeps popping up in my life. At first I was not into this at all, her smokey voice is getting to me though. The portrait of her on the cover of this album is utterly beautiful. Now I have the urge to go out and buy the whole album.
Multimedia painting. Golgi apparatus and secretory vesicles in green. Endosomes in yellow. Microtubules are black lines. Lysosomes and Multivesicular bodies are in red. The centrosome is the dark blue cylinders in the middle. Background was creating using different textured mediums and lace. Forefront contains papers and enamels.
I’m really into the band American Analog Set, especially the album Know by Heart. I think the main reason I was so into this band in the early 2000′s was the beautiful simple guitar cords and the wispy voice of Andrew Kenny. Now he’s on one of my favorite labels (Barsuk) with his new project The Wooden Birds. The album Magnolia features Ben Gibbard (of death cab for cutie) and members of Ola Podrida. Its produced by Nada Surf’s Louie Lino. Go out and give it a listen. If you like Iron and Wine, Nada Surf’s newer stuff… then I promise, you’ll love it. While your at it, go out and buy some old American Analog Set, and lay around the couch with a gin and tonic. It will be the best weekend ever.
