Oil on Canvas
Rhythmic geometries of color and patterned form underpin the painting. Odd abstracted electromechanical details provide a counterpoint. The patterns and shapes used are reminiscent of designs I’ve seen for nanomechanical devices, nanofluidics, and nanopatterned molecules. That and a little “night music”.
The pun (and some inspiration): Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusic". The musical piece has a lot of bright choppy rhythmic motifs instead of long and fluid melodic lines. The highly rhythmic stacatto structure of the musical piece is reflected in the painting. The musical title translates to “a little night music”. This being the 21st Century, “a little” goes nano.
One of a series of paintings addressing scientific imagery as metaphorical visual information. Through a change of context, these paintings (and drawings) explore an communicate the experiential aspects of investigation and discovery. By providing an alternative abstracted depiction of worlds an ideas that cannot be directly seen, a connection is built to the everyday world of objects.
