Art opening: Rx Garden: Sticky Ends

Release Date: 2009-11-04

Trinity University drawing professor Jessica Halonen’s curious artworks are often inspired by “dysfunctional biological systems.” At first glance, her delicate sculptures and scientific-looking drawings bring to mind the type of botanicals that might grow in the mythical forest that surrounds Candy Land, but are actually based on gene-splicing and pharmaceutical production. Halonen’s work has been shown extensively throughout Texas, notably as part of the Museum of Fine Arts Houston’s permanent collection.
