Untitled (Neurons), 2019

Graphite on paper, 70 × 50 cm

Untitled (Neurons) is part of an ongoing series of graphite drawings based on Scanning Electron Microscopic (SEM) images. These sub-microscopic scans are achieved by bouncing an electron across the surface of the target object, creating a 3D model that is then processed into a 2D image. Olivares creates his own digital model from these images and renders them in a hazy, sfumato drawing.
