Stunning Images by Neuroscientist-Artist

These Stunning Images by Neuroscientist-Artist Greg Dunn show the patterns of branching neurons. Greg has a PHD in neuroscience and his work is an impression of the brain as seen through a microscope. The patterns of the neurons reminded him of the aesthetic principles often used in Asian art. They have been painted in an ink wash painting style called sumi-e. Sumi-e is a style which involves making minimal brush strokes in order to capture the soul of a subject. These are ink wash, minimalist style paintings involving a process that Greg Dunn developed. The process involves blowing ink on non-absorbent paper. This causes the ink to splatter in a way that is representative of neurons.
