A DNA 11 portrait has been included in The New Zealand Portrait Gallery’s Art of Science exhibit, running now until May 22, 2012.
The Art of Science features paintings from the Royal Society of New Zealand’s private collection of portraits of notable scientists, capturing the connections between artists and scientists, and between science and art. The exhibit looks at the different ways scientists and artists appreciate colour and light.
This exhibit was one of the first times that a DNA portrait has been shown in New Zealand. We created it from a DNA sample from Professor Sir Peter Gluckman (above), the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor.
