Back to 2009 Art Installations
by Gina L. Jones
Illusive Embryology is a series of seven paintings arranged and connected as a room screen 24 feet long. These five foot tall paintings of embryos are an expression of my interest in evolutionary science, visionary dreams and bubbles. I was inspired by the naturalist and zoologist Ernst Haeckle's illustrations (1834-1919). As a scientist who documented with an artists flair, he created the infamous and controversial illustration of comparative embryology illustrated the pattern of unification in the organic world. My embryos are user friendly and walk a thin line between creepy and cute.
