"Sensation" Dorsal Root Ganglion

Acrylic and sand on Hardbord 16" x 20" This painting is based upon the histological study of a dorsal root ganglion. In short, the ganglia (nerve cell clusters) contain the cell bodies of sensory neurons which send messages to the spinal cord. My artistic inspiration for this painting was the art of Gustav Klimt. He paired the soft realism of the faces and hands of his subjects with richly patterned fabrics that appeared more as decoration than realism.
