Bert Menco

24 x 18 in.

Bert Menco moved from The Netherlands at the end of 1982 and has been working as a researcher at Northwestern University’s Department of Neurobiology and Physiology ever since. He divides his time between science and art. His art is insofar affected by his day-to-day activities, that the often-tedious discipline needed in research is also used in his art; reaching the final image is like a research goal. His dreamlike images tend to deal with confined spaces containing certain characters that reach out to one another but do not quite succeed in meeting.
