Artist's Talk: Macoto Murayama

From the Curator of Museum Services at the University of Dundee :

Macoto Murayama is a Japanese artist who cultivates ‘inorganic flora’. His extraordinary images are created after minutely dissecting real flowers and studying them under a microscope. His drawings are then modelled in 3D imaging software then rendered into 2D compositions on Photoshop before being printed in large scale.

To accompany the current exhibition of Macoto’s work in the Lamb Gallery, we are delighted that the artist will be coming to Dundee to give a talk about his work on Tuesday 24th May at 6pm in the D’Arcy Thompson Lecture Theatre, Tower Building. The talk will be followed by a reception in the gallery.   Everyone is welcome and there is no need to book.

This event has been supported by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation.
