Meech Miyagi’s work is informed by science. The Sacramento artist’s sculptures are derived from the intricacies of neurobiology and bacteria on the cellular level. The overall effect is familiar, eerie and stunning. The Sacramento artist says that his copper-wire pieces depict the circumstance of being human, “the experience common to all people”—lest humans forget how much we have in common and that we are all in this thing together.

Miyagi, who teaches at Sacramento State University, will be showing his work at Artspace1616 with Andreas Ensslen.
