Cheyenne Weaver : Agar Sample Series

How cool are these watercolors from Cheyenne Weaver’s Agar Sample Series? The artist provides a definition for Agar alongside the artwork: “this gelatinous material, an extract from red algae, is most frequently used as a culture medium, especially for bacteria.”  I  take it that these works are inspired by the colors and texture of agar, and are not actually made from agar. That would be cool too.

  2. this is a gorgeous series, I love the way she’s exploiting the medium and her palette choice. It’s so rich.

  3. Beautiful brushwork! A really solid command of the medium and wonderful control in terms of handling the viscosity of paint. Great work that I’m glad I’ve found. Thank you!
