It took several weeks in the making and it is my biggest print project to date (100cm x 70cm). ANAPHASE screenprint edition comes in 2 colour ways: RED or BLUE, which are respectively 8 and 6 colours super limited editions on high end 300 gsm Fabriano paper. Both were hand-printed by me in my home studio in Sheffield and are now available from Nelly Duff gallery at 156 Columbia road in East London or online HERE.
ANAPHASE BLUE: edition of 10
ANAPHASE RED: edition of 20
Later this month I’ll be showing work with Stolenspace gallery at URVANITY art fair. I just finished a brand new 100 x 150cm painting titled ANAPHASE, which I’m very excited about. Acrylic and gold leaf on canvas, ANAPHASE represents one of the several stereotypical phases of cell division. For more information please contact the gallery at firstname.lastname@example.org

I’m excited to announce the start of a new collaboration with Redhouse Originals Gallery in Harrogate this month.
“The aim of every artist is to arrest motion”
We are delighted to introduce the work of French painter, muralist and screenprinter Florence Blanchard.
Throughout April we will be exhibiting a small but perfectly formed group of original paintings and prints, with all works available to purchase in person from the gallery or online here.
Blanchard was one of the first female graffiti writers in France and began working in the early 1990s under the name Ema. She then moved to New York where she graduated with a PhD from New York University in 2008. This coincided with a progressive shift in style, moving away from traditional graffiti and adopting a more abstract approach. The artist’s recent work is directly inspired by her training as a scientist and depicts abstract molecular landscapes questioning the idea of visual perception.
“As a trained molecular biologist, I have thoroughly observed nature through powerful microscopic lenses. Underpinned by a knowledge that all matter is made of particles –
whether animal, human or mineral my artwork aims to magnify what the human eye can’t see. I invite viewers to immerse themselves in an uncanny macroscopic world. By representing molecules on a large-scale I aim to question our perception of our surroundings. Through bold geometric shapes, fluorescent colours and representations of particles colliding in planned riots of abstraction I aim to depict people flowing through the station at any instant with the ultimate goal to arrest this peculiar motion.”
Florence Blanchard, April 2016
These stunning works will be on display until Saturday 30th April. For further details please contact us here or call the gallery direct on +44 (0)1423 884400.
In the past few months, I produced and hosted a series of podcasts for BioTechniques.com called BioTalk.
BioTechniques is a peer-reviewed international journal that serves scientists engaged in basic and applied science. It includes primarily articles and reviews on the application of techniques in molecular biology, and is available open access.
BioTalk features interviews with scientists from various fields of biology and focuses on technological advances achieved by authors published in the journal.
In this episode of BioTalk from BioTechniques, Gal Almogy, a post-doc at ETH Zürich explains how increasing the accuracy of the Tet system might lead to effective gene therapy.
Gal Almogy, together with Gary Nolan associate professor at Stanford University, published a research report in the January 2009 issue of BioTechniques describing their improvements to the Tet system.
Almogy also discusses his career goals in the synthetic biology field and his desire to help students and post-docs navigate the academic job market.
