Image from Dean Jay's recent series

Daniel Jay, Dean of The Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences, is also an established artist. His recent series, “Gunpowder Archemy,” is made from volatile chemicals. Remaining unmixed on canvas, in their fluid state these chemicals have the potential to cause explosions, speaking to the power of a material being dependent on the hands they are used by. 

Dean Jay was one of twenty artists at the Inaugural Tech Art Fair to have their works selected for inclusion in the SciArt Center of New York’s virtual exhibition as part of the Tech Art Fair at the Ontario Science Centre, February 17 and 18th.
