about this exhibition
5 - 28 JULY, SUBIACO. Official opening 6-8pm Thursday 7 July.
Miik Green's latest exhibition is a continuation of his xylem series paintings, mixed-media interactions on panels of aluminium. The works draw from cell-staining techniques and biological pigmentation, where colour can define abnormalities or infection. In the biological sciences, colour is often strikingly evident and can be used to identify, map, trace and visualise cells and cell components under a microscope. In a similar manner, Green injects, drags and extracts liquid materials, pigments and chemicals, yet allows the paintings to evolve independently of his hand.
