During Art Week Berlin, there is a group show in my studio building in Weissensee: Opium. I have my crazy microbes painting there. There is also a program of events if you feel like a concert surrounded by art. More info on the exhibition space website: https://toscanahalle.wordpress.com/

I would like to share here a poem that I wrote. In some mysterious way it relates to and describes my art practice as it stands today.
and reveals a crystalline form.
It has no end
It has no boundary
Yet I hold it as a finite space.
A glimpse into the infinite perhaps.
A house, roof removed,
becomes a garden
And the walls vanish
The Garden Floats in the Clouds.
There are many colors
All colors are clean
Each color is a self
No color is mixed with another
But each color reflects in the others.
There are thin strands
or a spiders web made three dimensional.
For the first time I can hold this form
I stretch out my arms
to cradle it
Define it in the air
Make definition to the undefinable.
A crystalline rainbow infinity.
It is vast
It is lonely
It does not fit another like a Lego block should.
It is graceful
Yet it has no poise
It invites me in
will I be the only one there?
Astronomical Art. This news post perhaps belongs in January, but I was today reminded of it. Inspired by the Science Friday interview, an organization in New Zealand put together a wonderful art+science activity for kids. The worksheet features my Star Charts paintings and incorporates various science facts that I used in my process. It is a free resource, and you can find it on the Science Alive website, in the Earth and Beyond section: Astronomical Art. Here is the link to the free resources.
Online show of the Horizons opens at The Lila Project on Artsy.

The backdrop, the painting that you see me working on, is the next installment in the Star Charts series, and one of my most ambitious paintings yet. Below is a studio photo showing what the painting looks like today. The white stickers mark the positions of stars on a chart centered on the Kepler mission View Finder. The bubbling colors were inspired by the Cosmic Microwave Background radiation. Next week, these colors will be covered with white primer and the painting process will begin again. At the very end, the stickers will be removed to reveal a small random sample of this colorful background, the light from the past, the past of the painting modeling the past of the Universe. So don't get attached to this image, it is not here to stay!
