Artist statement — Ella Rhoades.
I went literal in my interpretation of Angelicque White’s photographs. The imagery of life beneath the microscope lends itself so beautifully to mosaic form. Optical filters are remnants from the oceanographic industry and generated the color palette for this piece (Emiliana Coccolithophore). Aqua blues and greens feel right for such studies from the sea.
