What we are made of is one of the first combination oil paint and glass I created. I used many flameworked elements in this work which represents the biology of today. In this work I talk about the effect of genetics on our daily life. Does money drive medicine? How close are we in out DNA to the chimp. We can make this oil painting but he can’t as he sits on an artists pallet. This is a very complex work with many hidden meanings. BT seeds from Monsanto are represented as the genetically altered seeds ruined so many farmers crops in India. Are we becoming altered by all the changes in our food? So many questions in this art work to ponder. It is an oil painting on canvas with flameworked elements, the frame is made of pulled glass rods.
