That's a good question, Jackie. I feel I'm a BioArtist in my own way, although I don't work with living organisms. Is that required? While I see art that I can identify with every so often, it doesn't seem to have coalesced into a real movement, with manifestos, dedicated galleries and a network of collectors. Maybe we can do something about that, by getting together and making something happen. A good definition would be a start. Do we have to be biochemists who are also artists, or can we expand the definition to include biologically-inspired art? I think people are ready for an earth-based alternative to academic abstraction, stark reductivism and airy conceptualism, but maybe that's just me...

Here are some links to some bioArtists (in the larger sense) whose work I've enjoyed:
