Intermedia Abstract Art
My intermedia abstract art involves three stages:
acrylic paintings > MacroScape photography > digital art
As a composer, I approach my art creation through a self-sampling process.
Within a symphony there are multiple movements and countless measures.
Mixed Media Paintings
My acrylic paintings on canvas form the foundation of the intermedia art process. These densely layered vibrant paintings are my visual scores. They explore color, movement, rhythm, and are heavily textured.
....It's like an entire symphony on canvas!
Macro-photography of my paintings
Using macro photography to capture fingernail-size regions of the original paintings, these images become musical movements that bring to light perspectives unattainable with the naked eye.
This brings attention to parts of the painting that people might miss if casually glanced at. I find the most beautiful part of a painting in its elaborate details.
It's all in the details...
MacroScapes are then arranged kaleidoscopically into circle or diamond shape mandalas. These mandalas merge my personal interests of music, art, and science that further explore sacred geometry, fractals, and symmetry. It is more than an image seen with our eyes; it is an actual moment in time that express both the microcosm and macrocosm simultaneously.
A measure of the finite and a road map to infinity!
As a Hawaii-born San Francisco-based artist, I continue to experiment with patterns of theme and variation that mimic nature and the cosmos in a way to inspire wonder and beauty.
