Cytokinesis is a unique larger size contemporary modern sculpture paper relief by UK artist Rogan Brown. The relief is composed of uncountable layers of laser and handcut paper elements, which are stacked using foam board spacers. The carefully arranged layers convey the dramatic energy of cell division (mitosis).
The artist’s comment on this piece of work: “At any given moment millions of cells in your body are dividing and multiplying in order to replenish and maintain your skin, hair, intestine and bodily organs, etc. Cytokinesis is the final and most dramatic stage of mitosis when the cell wall ruptures and splits in two to form identical daughter cells. I have tried to freeze the ultimate moment of transformation and becoming,”
The art work is mounted inside a bespoke shadow box with a neutral white background. The shadow box allows the three-dimensional work to be seen from all angles, at the same protecting it.
