Artist Statement

In Our Tiny Neighbors: An Artist's Rendition of an Assortment of Microbes Jen Obst creates something beautiful out of what is often seen as ugly, dangerous and even deadly.  Her fascination with the microscopic world, particularly infectious microbes, brings about this series of drawings of complicated biological structures.  E.coli, penicillin and skin melanoma are amongst the specimens Obst has chosen to explore in her work.  Using a variety of mediums such as pastels, ink and graphite, she creates drawings that celebrate the unsettling beauty of these unique pathogens.

The plates and vases are inspired by the types of shrubs in her backyard, and the raspberry plates take the foliage through the seasons.
