Atomic Art is inspired by the mysterious and magical patterns of atoms as seen through modern microscopes.
The sublime patterns speak of the subtle energies that lie just beyond our perceptions.
At present, the art is based on Silicon and Iridium atoms. Silicon is the eighth most common element in the universe and sits at the heart of all things digital. Iridium is one of the rarest of elements and is used in the production of semiconductors.
David Mankey has been creating Atomic Art since 1988 and has held many successful exhibitions including a ground breaking multimedia driven show at the National Science and Technology Centre and at the Front Gallery.
