Society for Neuroscience

19 Aug

We were finally able to snap some installation shots of a piece we framed and installed in Society for Neuroscience’s (SfN) 14th Street building several months ago.  The artist, Greg Dunn, is currently working on a doctorate in neuroscience at the University of Pennsylvania.  His selection as the artist for SfN’s lobby could not have been more fitting!  SfN wanted a piece of artwork that would reflect their ownership and occupancy of the building, but that wasn’t so obviously about neuroscience that other building tenants wouldn’t be able to appreciate it.

From Greg’s website:
“I enjoy Asian art. I particularly love minimalist scroll and screen painting from the Edo period in Japan. I am also a fan of neuroscience. Therefore, it was a fine day when two of my passions came together upon the realization that the elegant forms of neurons (the cells that comprise your brain) can be painted expressively in the Asian sumi-e style. Neurons may be tiny in scale, but they possess the same beauty seen in traditional forms of the medium (trees, flowers, and animals).”
