Paint­ing the Deep

Where Boston - - ART -

Part-artist, part-sci­en­tist, part-mer­maid, Lily Si­mon­son has brought a new per­spec­tive to the life forms and aquas­capes of the deep sea. Ac­cus­tomed to set­ting up stu­dio aboard ocean-go­ing science ves­sels, and more than happy to don a wet-suit, Si­mon­son ex­plores worlds few other peo­ple ever see—then paints them to recre­ate a sen­sa­tion both im­mer­sive and rev­e­la­tory. Check out her lu­mi­nes­cent work at Har­vard Mu­seum of Nat­u­ral His­tory. 26 Ox­ford St., Cam­bridge, 617.495.3045
