Valluzzi's metaphoric abstractions on science draw from ideas, symbols, types of order, and imagery in the sciences. Science Visualization for non-art purposes involves several layers of highly codified abstraction. During this process visual renditions of complex hypotheses stand in for data and phenomena much in the manner of a metaphoris narrative used to convey a complex idea. Valluzzi's Science-Inspired abstractions speak more often to these hypotheses and theoretical frameworks than to science images or phenomenology. Artistic expression and unusual visual choices give colorful voice to the scintific hypothesis as metaphor.
Many of these are considerably less "abstract" once the viewer is acclimated to the language of visual representation and symbolism particular to the science topics in the painting. Strong influences from imaging of the micro and nano worlds are typical, and include peculiarities of microscope images such as flattening of the visual field, and large indistinct distant out-of-plane objects. There are also influences from areas of theoretical condensed and soft matter physics, evidenced in the way colors and shapes are arranged. Often the patterns on canvas are strangely reminiscent of order to disorder transitions, spontaneous phase transitions, ideals and models for cooperativity in soft matter and the hierarchical arrangements of statistical thermodynamics.Occasional use of mathematical equations makes these relationships explicit.
