Cajal Portfolios

"Time and concentration allow the intellect to perceive a ray of light in the darkness of the most complex problem."

― Santiago Ramón y Cajal

Welcome to the world of Dawn Hunter's art, where life, history, and neuroscience intertwine in a unique exploration of Santiago Ramón y Cajal's life. Through six distinct portfolios, we journey together through a rich tapestry of biographical and introspective works, crafted from a blend of various artistic mediums. Each portfolio echoes a chapter of Cajal's life and Hunter's creative process, highlighting the personal, scientific, and historical layers of Cajal's existence. From recreating his scientific illustrations to retracing his daily walks, and even diving into the philosophical underpinnings of selfies versus self-portraits, Hunter invites us to explore the lesser-known facets of this pioneering neuroscientist. This page serves as an icon menu to these portfolios. Please click on each to explore deeper into the intimate intersection of art and science.
