Rob Kesseler works in the overlapping territories between Art, Design, Photography, Applied Art and Science. During the past fifteen years he has worked with a range of scientists – botanical, molecular, genetic, with access to their knowledge and technologies.

To move into another’s territory, to engage with their discipline, to go beyond the superficial, to explore areas of commonality and difference is one of the privileges of being an artist. Using a range of microscopy techniques to examine plant specimens from around the world – Kesseler constructs powerful images that transcend their scientific origins to create a sense of awe and wonder, a harmonic union of science and art. Convergent territories will reveal how Rob Kesseler’s work has been shaped by a rich involvement across a range of art, design and science practices.
