About this work


A ghost cell is similar to a normal tissue cell but it doesn't have a nucleus. The artist has made and interpretation of the ghost cells creating a cell made visible by the outline of its mitochondrial network. Cellular membranes that are there, but not there, assumed by the viewer. The light or dark coming from the centre depicts a not-there nucleus. Cellular level art, paint on silk, digitised.
