Science and Art
Jody Rasch is a New York based artist whose work is based on themes from astronomy, physics and biology, and in particular, images from electron microscopy, particle accelerators and radio astronomy.
Rasch transforms scientific images and discovers their underlying patterns, creating a work that is both representational and abstract. He uses scale as an element in his work, rendering microscopic and subatomic images on a large scale and the galactic on a small scale. He utilizes a variety of techniques and media, including oil, acrylic paint, pastels and colored pencil.
By exploring the invisible Rasch invites the observer to look beyond the “seen” to appreciate the beauty and mystery of the “unseen.” His art challenges us to explore the world around us. Art/science artwork such as Rasch's enables us to better understand who we are and how we relate to our universe.
Rasch has been exhibiting for over 25 years in both solo and group shows and is affiliated with the Art & Science Collaborations, Inc. (ASCI). He trained at the Arts Students’ League of New York and The School of Visual Arts in New York.
Rasch’s work is in private and corporate collections, including the Pfizer Corporation in New York and Colonial Penn Insurance Company in Philadelphia. His work is currently featured in SciArt’s virtual and pop-up EmBodied exhibition and in online publications and magazines such as Art the Science, Interalia Magazine and SciArt in America (December 2015).
