Working at the intersection of art and science and taking inspiration from the wonders of nature and its forms, Marynes Avila utilizes repetition to redefine the object and its symbolism. During her residency, the artist will further her ongoing research on the complexities of multiplicity by examining the unique characteristics of Hill End’s native and introduced flora under the microscope. Responding to this investigation, Avila will create a new body of work including drawings, digital photomicrographs, digital micrographic film and a site-specific installation.
