Invisible Geological Universes

Post image for Invisible Geological Universes

I saw this work by Carly Waito on Oracle Fox and immediately assumed they were photographs of actual gems and minerals – but no – they are oil paintings. Can you imagine the patience and attention to detail that must go into them? So amazing.

I like this quote from the artist’s website:

“Each painting expands the infinitesimal traits of the artist’s tiny subjects, rendering them as detailed maps of an otherwise invisible geological universe.”
