Yellow River

Rebecca Ivatts - Yellow River)

Yellow River (2019)

Acrylic, house paint and varnish on canvas

90 x 120cm

A colourful urban map of London and the Thames? No, this Jackson Pollock-esque canvas is actually inspired by imaging of the fruit fly’s central nervous system. Indeed, the latter’s relative simplicity – and so many shared genes - makes the fruit fly an ideal test bed for studying human genetics and brain wiring.
