Klari Reis stirs a little science into her art while applying an interest in bioengineering to her smoothly dazzling pieces. Reis works with epoxy polymer, a synthetic derived from hydrocarbons that have been extracted from crude oil, which dries to a shiny plasticized finish. The result is an array of colourful interpretations of magnified microscopic molecular forms, all bearing the names of prescription drugs. Reis combines ideas with are organic with those that are highly technological, all while working with a toxic substance to produce an esthetically pleasing body of work.
