The Art of Kate Findlay

I am pleased to share with you the amazing work of UK artist Kate Findlay.  As you all know art with a scientific underpinning is a subject close to my heart.  Kate has made a series of works ranging in size from 60 cm square to very large based on images from the Large Hadron Collider (you know, the huge underground machine that was designed to study subatomic particles that (according to alarmists) was going to fracture space and time and cause another big bang when it was first turned on!).

Kate has used a diverse range of materials to create her stunning images.  As she writes in her article for Hand Eye Magazine:  "Like a magpie, I have been attracted to all manner of shiny things, in my search for items that would give the right effect. Fabrics have included silks, synthetics printed with holographic foils and plasticized fabrics like PVC."

You can check out more of Kate's work over on her website.
