abstract painting of weather patternsWeather Patterns: 1950


" These pieces represent a form of “data art,” and are inspired by meteorological records from the Central Texas area. I translate numerical data regarding temperature and rainfall into a visual language of grids and colors. In this way, I am questioning the ways in which meteorological data is traditionally represented, in an attempt to leave the viewer with a more visceral and non-verbal experience of these…

My goal is to forget the widely accepted reality, the so called mundane. I turn my focus towards the fantastic. Not necessarily the ideal, but the surreal, the mystical, the super-natural.

Kymia Nawabi crying

 

Kymia Nawabi's statements from her recent interview were endearing and funny in their honesty. I find artists are sometimes not willing to express the reality of their situation.

Also very influential in my work the study of color vibrations and the way visual impressions are created: the combination of form, tonalities and texture that form many layers in which the work can be perceived." --Pedro A. Gonzalez.…

Writing My Artist Statement....

I'd love to say that I enjoy writing my artist statement but the truth is that I often feel like a monkey at a typewriter. But the more I write, the easier it is to shake off the dust that has gathered since the last time I set out to conquer this literary challenge.

I have always been a strong dreamer, and the works of Carl Jung inspire me, especially his writings on synchronicity and the collective unconscious.The macabre and the absurd also inform my work, as well as city billboards, street signage, and graffiti."  …
