Langley Anderson is an artist based in Ponchatoula. Her work explores a relationship between science and art. Tight imaging of organic specimens and the manipulation of their color and space transform minute matter into digital art and archival pigment prints. She enlarges her subjects-sinuous scales of snakeskin, withered pods of plants, hairy articulations of arachnids, and more-using scanning electron and stereo microscopes, then digitally enhances the intricate structures with expressionistic hues to reveal a world of fascinating form. Merging actuality and abstraction allows unique anatomical attributes to surface. Langley’s work expresses a mutualism between science and art and displays the inherent beauty of nature in a new way.
