Four artists, three from Silicon Valley and one from St. Paul MN, have come together to create a beautiful, provocative exhibition in response to our era of space exploration that will be shown at the NASA Ames Research Center Visitors' Center in Mountain View.
Leah Lubin, Myrrh, Mike Mosher and Colette Gaiter all respond very differently to the concept of "space science". Leah Lubin has painted a series of abstract and realistic canvases that show her appreciation the cosmos as the celestial source of all atoms and life.
Myrrh, who has used science imagery in her artwork for over 30 years, presents round translucent acrylic paintings in a breadth of forms from the cosmological to the terrestrial.
Mike Mosher's "Flight Paths" presents eclectic narratives, historical and semiconductor imagery in a computer-based installation behind a mural-like facade.
Colette Gaiter has assembled a wide range of memoirs and reflectionsher own and others'--on the tumultuous 1960s into the interactive multimedia artwork "Space|RACE".
"This show has been a long-standing dream for me. I am very excited about the level and variety of art and artists that have connected with this show and its theme." says Leah Lubin, who first conceived of an art show at NASA exploring space science, and then approached the other three.
