The best way to introduce you, in crystal clear words, to the work of Nathalie Miebach, is to read the artist statement: “My work focuses on the intersection of art and science and the visual articulation of scientific observations. Using the methodologies and processes of both disciplines, I translate scientific data related to astronomy, ecology and meteorology woven sculptures. My method of translation is principally that of weaving – in particular basket weaving – as it provides me with a simple yet highly effective grid through which to interpret data in three-dimensional space.” The first reaction I got, after reading these lines, was just: Wow! Then I read it again and again, trying to understand the “mental wiring” that originated such beautiful complexity in first place. I felt like a kid who jumps trying to grab an apple, hanging from a branch way out of reach. I went to sleep and the day after I looked at the sculptures and read the text again and, all of a sudden, that apple was resting on my palm: Nathalie Miebach is not only an artist. She is a scientist, a musician, a mathematician, an artisan, a sculptress, an acute and enchanted observer of Mother Nature. The intricate weaving and the minute details of her graceful work is an accurate reflection of her mind which is not grey matter but a rich, colorful, pattern of neurons, so densely interwoven to nest three dimensional dreams of data fireworks. Her combination of disciplines is Leonardesque. Her sculptures is a poem of numbers, nicely painted on a pentagram where each little piece is a note.
