Micah Ofstedahl’s Surreal, Biological Landscapes

Micah Ofstedahl paints what appear to be abstract surrealism. But the paintings are inspired by discoveries of science such as single-cell organisms, the structure of a bee’s eye, or anatomy at the cellular level. These are subjects that biology and microbiology continue to explore, from the neurons in our brains to the fabric of the universe. In this sense, Ofstedahl’s paintings are semi-representational, and in creating his abstract art he is drawing on the rich diversity of forms found in nature.
