With intertwined vines, clusters of ripe fruit, dramatic chiaroscuro, and bold perspectives, Mia Brownell’s vibrant compositions simultaneously reference 17th-century still lifes of food and the coiling configurations of molecular imaging. These dynamic paintings reconsider the structures of DNA, amino acids, and protein chains as the architecture from which her food subjects emerge.
