Wally Gilbert received a Nobel Prize in Chemistry, in 1980, with Fred Sanger. for deciphering the order of chemical groups along the DNA molecule, to read the genes, leading to the current understanding of all organisms. In Digital Art Gilbert first made large images of fragments of the world, focusing on form, texture, and color, using a small digital camera. He created an installation at the Norblin Site in Warsaw, an old factory, where 26 12′ by 8′ hangings and 30 36″ x 24″ prints were displayed for two months in 2007, then later that year in Łodz, and again in Poznan in 2009. The set of 30 prints was also exhibited in New York, Washington D.C., Los Angeles, and San Diego. Pictures that capture the joy of dancers appeared in a book “Behind the Scenes at Boston Ballet” by Christine Temin with 68 photos by Wally Gilbert. His recent work explores images in saturated color in a series of “Transformations.” Gilbert has had forty-seven one-person shows.
