Fixed behind glass, Culang’s imagery takes on qualities of the scientific specimen. Is the viewer peering through a microscope or telescope? The images are held taut by this ambiguity, stretched between fractal geometry and primordial disorder, representation and abstraction, photography and drawing, gestural and generative art, the endlessness of a landscape and the confines of a petri dish. Complicated by opposing suggestions of scientificity and fiction, Culang’s work sketches out a universe full of patterns yet to be discovered and truths yet to be invented.

Born and raised in the East Bay, Culang received his BA in Art Studio from the University of California, Davis. His work has been exhibited in Northern California. For the past decade, he has worked in the field of antibiotic development at a biotechnology startup. He resides in Alameda, California.
