Wall Sculpture inspired by scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a single Pennate diatom. Diatoms are single-celled algae enclosed inside highly intricate glass (silica) walls called fustules. Diatoms produce 20-30% of the air we breathe and are a major food resource for aquatic microorganisms.

"My wall sculptures unveil the forms and textures of plant structures as seen from a microscope, but through clay, and in sculptural form. I am captivated by the process of translating two-dimensional micrograph renderings, into three-dimensional objects that resemble prehistoric impressions of preserved organisms and which strive to capture a glimpse of a Grand creation event or prehistoric moment in time."

Gina Jacklin

My work seeks to unveil the beauty of life unseen from a scientific lens that, together with a Christ-centred perspective, strives to convey that all life forms, have been expertly created, and through their complexity and design, highlight the intrinsic purpose, intellect and beauty perceived even in the smallest, seemingly insignificant and sometimes darkest of environments.

When magnified through a microscope, our seemingly mundane world reveals a magical landscape, teeming with beauty and the strokes of pure genius that allude to the handiwork of a Grand Designer. Often using micrographs as reference material, my work offers a window into this mysterious and microscopic dimension, connecting viewers with the beauty, awe and wonder of creation, that aims to spark a sense of joy, hope and wonder.
