Artist Klari Reis creates beautiful abstract compositions in petri dishes, combining brightly colored epoxy polymers, then encouraging and manipulating their chemical reactions to produce her artwork. Reis was inspired by watching the beautiful, natural imagery created by fluorescent dyes and cells under a microscope, while in the hospital after being diagnosed with Chrone’s Disease. This year, she is doing one petri dish painting every day, each one a complex mixture of liquid color, which simultaneously look both natural and not.
