"[Kristin] Osgood Lamelas melds human life with the life of the planet by the literal overlaying of visual information, and by the pairing of the micro- scopic with the macroscopic. For her large painting on wood, la boda (which means wedding in Spanish), the artist first took samples of saliva from herself and her husband, mixed them together, and photographed the cells under a microscope. She then painted images of these cells over a map of southern new Jersey, the geographical location where their marriage took place. the result is a mystical blending of form, space and time."
