About Microcosm
Microcosm is an exhibition of new paintings by Scott Saw at M Modern Gallery in Palm Springs from May 20th – June 10th. The paintings explore space, nature, technology, family life and express the artist’s continual interest with nostalgia.

The show features a new series of paintings that the artist created during the first months of his new son Kai’s life. “With a new baby in the house and working out of my home studio all day and night I have been very isolated – in fact, my wife turned my car into a storage shed for months because it never left the driveway! This solitude amongst my home and family certainly has influenced my recent work. Every painting takes place on an ‘island’ floating in space. I have recently become very interested in physics and understanding cosmology and string theory. Every painting in the Microcosm series contains design elements which are based on some of the simplest vibrational patterns in string theory.”

The paintings are full of iconography relating to space, nature and technology. Rockets take the form of birds and fish, cities grow into tree-like structures and robots have tree trunk torsos. There is also a sense of family life in the new work. In one painting a robot father teaches his son about fishing. In another, a family of robots wave to another family member as he passes by their ultra modern space-home in a fish shaped rocket. There will be 30 new paintings on display as well as a selection of other recent paintings and silk-screen prints.

The artist’s reception will be on May 20th, 7-11 PM. Complementary snacks and beverages will be available. For details and to view more of Saw's art visit:
