Apoptosis

Apoptosis

Acrylic on 4 canvases, 32″ x 41″

A Greek word meaning “to fall away like leaves”, apoptosis is a programmed cell death, an act of self-destruction when the cell has been infected by disease or if it can no longer function.  Cells that undergo apoptosis cut their own DNA into fragments and signal other cells to dispose of it.  This biological self-regulation is something I have always found poetic.
