Dye-Chromium: Projected Paintings

With this project I investigate the chemical basis for color at the microscopic scale through the use of Lantern Slides. Each image is painted on a 5x5 cm Dichromated Gelatin plate with a technique similar to my Chemical Paintings. The chromium is an ideal medium since it has a wide array of colors among its oxidation states. It is stunning to see every nuance of the forms and colors the chemical reactions create in these abstractions when enlarged with projection.
