Sara Shackleton - Painters

My work relates to cellular biology and genetics. I am interested in the progression through scientific research of our understanding of ourselves and how through this investigation our lives can be changed.

Using these ideas as a base for my work I have developed my ideas and concerns from an interest in the beauty of microscopic biological specimens to a more focused investigation into genetics and issues of identity.

I have produced a series of pieces concerning the manipulation of scientific knowledge. Drawing parallels between biological evolution and the evolution of a visual language I am exploring ideas surrounding genetic manipulation and the Human Genome Project - the quest to complete the inherited lexicon of the human being.
