This piece has explosive, almost volatile color that embodies the duality of simultaneous allure and horror in natural phenomena. At first I thought the reference to cancer cells in the title was the only element that indicated possibly dangerous subject matter, but the shapes themselves have visually threatening characteristics. Like blood red tulips, the cells seem to morph from floral mutations into signs of cellular destruction. The small bits of green against the elongated tendril shapes are still reminiscent of flowers, but I also see the outstretched spokes off of the bottom “bloom” as spider like and menacing. The splotches of blue and pink ground are surprisingly complementary to the overall imagery, and hold up against the strong color contrasts. I’m unsure of scale of the painting, and am curious about the reference to glass in the tagged words/media. But regardless of the presence of the piece as an object versus a two dimensional picture, it illustrates the tension between chance and intension; and the artists’ ability to see beauty in what terrifies us.
