About Bio-Cosmic Expanse
Green states, “‘Bio-Cosmic Expanse’ is a large installation of paintings that mimic the planetary formation of our universe. The individual paintings are inspired by investigations into contemporary science and microscopic imaging. The ambiguities created in merging these worlds help generate a curiosity for each viewer to form their own interpretation into these vast worlds–both infinitesimal and far-reaching.”
