Balci's Microbial Explorations On View at Three Shows

Selin Balci has two solo and one group exhibition this fall. The first solo show will be at Honfleur, Washington DC (September 12-October 31; opening reception on September 12, 6-8 PM). Smack Mellon, Brooklyn, NY will present Selin’s other solo show, a site-specific installation of a Petri dish world. (November 22-January 4, 2015; artist’s reception on November 22, 5-8 PM.)

Selin will also be featured in a group show curated by Cristin Cash: Life is Flux: Visualizing Change in Art and Biology, Boyden Gallery, St. Mary's College of Maryland. The show explores the boundaries between art and science through consideration of four primary agents of change: evolution, development and growth, human perception and transformation. Through September 25.

In her work, Selin explores parallels between the behavior of microorganisms and humans, and uses the former “to recreate observable interactions and conflicts across the picture surface, where the outcomes reveal boundaries, edges and distinctive forms.” From these she creates beautiful images that relates “to both natural and human impacted landscapes.” www.selinbalci.com
