Painting, drawing, photography

Like so many others I am trying to make sense of the world. My search for meaning expressed itself through pencil drawings, drawings with fragments of photographs, paintings, photography, and conceptual works of ephemeral art, which I call meteographs. The meteographs are paintings made with non-toxic pigments on ice found that is in the forest. They are promptly photographed, before they disintegrate. The photographs are then face mounted on acrylic glass in a process called Diasec. Meteographs are not just an amalgam of painting and photography; they are an aesthetic means of recording meteorological phenomena. In so doing, they manifest the interconnectedness of culture and nature.
