Aislinn Cassidy is a local artist from Derry, a former graduate in Microbiology and teacher now in the final year of her BA Fine Art at Ulster University. She uses a broad range of approaches in her work focusing mainly on Installation, Video art, and Photography. She enjoys taking advantage of her scientific knowledge for artistic expression and is enthusiastic about bringing Science and Art together in her work. When exploring different media and techniques, she combines scientific experimentation with creative aesthetics, often with the inclusion of contradictory visual and/or aural elements. This contradiction reflects her own awareness of the beauty and brutality of nature, and her response and interpretation to life experience, her observations and poetry. Her work; having scientific, artistic, and poetic value, offers viewers a multiplicity of interpretation and an opportunity to reflect upon the beauty and wonder of nature.
This exhibition showcases Aislinn's experimental artworks that link Plant Biology, Chemistry and Art. It will explore visually and scientifically hydroponics and fluid uptake in flowers and plants.
Opening Night Reception: Wednesday 16 Feb, 7pm. All are welcome.
