Michael Koerner's newest series is titled "The God Cell," which features mirrored abstractions of golds and reds. The artist uses his background in chemistry to create his work through a 19the century, camera-less process. His work explores his family history and genetics through tintypes.
About his process, Koerner explains:
"A lot of genetics and a lot of exploration of health and spirituality goes into these tintypes. It's drawing on my background in Chemistry. I teach pharmaceutical sciences and medicinal chemistry at the University of Illinois and science is part of who I am. I'm using science to do chemistry on a photosensitized plate from the 1860s."
