Description

This is an artistic homage to a T4 bacteriophage, a virus that parasitizes a bacterium by infecting it and reproducing inside it. Phages are amazing organisms that outnumber all the bacteria on earth! And they look like cool little robots. This one was made using a batik technique - I drew the outline of the phage using a resist, and then painted over it with a combination of ink and water on Yupo.

Yupo is a non-absorbent "paper" made of 100% polypropylene, so instead of sinking into the surface, the ink stays on top and forms amazing patterns as it dries. After it dried, I removed the resist to reveal the white of the paper.

In a mixture of indigo ink and water on yupo - this one has a standard size 11 x 14 inch white mat and backing board for easier framing. Will look great in a simple black or silver frame.
