FLUID PAINTINGS [Cloud Tank] 2017
These portraits of natural phenomena are my testament to the timeless forces perpetually in motion around us. Both awesome and unsettling is the thought that fundamentally, we are shaped by the same rules and part of a similar drama, unfolding at the largest scale imaginable.
These paintings are created by infusing mixed media into water with a variety of different implements and methods [cloud tank]. Though chaos is inherent to the medium, I’ve elevated the level of intentionality through repetition, technique and invention. Final images are captured at approximately 12k (100mp medium format camera).
