I'm a visual artist and composer living and working in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. My atmospheric paintings are a tool to explore and collect the hidden dynamics of the planet earth's atmosphere. I use stacks of paper as a spatial structure and ink as a marker of time, allowing the natural processes to create the artwork. Pigments reorganize through wind and gravity in fractal structures and show a tense and infinite spectrum of form and color. The resulting image reflects the energetic dynamics and the constant gradual progress of creation - the artwork: a site-specific fingerprint of the planet earth's atmosphere.
The minimalistic compositions are a translation of my emotional response to the place. The soundscape complements and expands the atmospheric painting.
