Prisoner’s Dilemma (detail) by Hava Gurevich, photograph by Jeff Kravitz.

Hava Gurevich’s colorful abstractions feature botanical, aquatic and microscopic motifs as she explores repeating patterns in nature.

Blending images from the real world and her imagination, Organic Fiction celebrates nature in all its beauty, chaos and complexity.

Gurevich received a B.F.A. in photography from U-M and an M.F.A. in painting from Illinois State University. Her creative process begins with photographs and sketches of details in nature, such as tree branches, ice patterns, twisted vines and delicate spring blossoms.

These drawings contribute to her personal vocabulary of shapes and gestures, and she often digitally combines them with older paintings to become starting points of new works.

Check out her creations for yourself, now on display at Michigan Medicine!
