I have been developing techniques for creating paintings and prints using sound-waves. I call my works sound fossils because they are not painted with a brush or by hand, but instead they are the visible manifestation of sound. Projecting intention into my works, bringing forth order from the random, and creating form by 'speaking', these are both the method and the primary message of these works.
These pieces are an extension of the 'whispers' investigation, started in 2013, into painting using sound waves. These 'sound fossils' are prints of sound waves using a variety of media on rice paper while others are paintings using various ground pigments, earth, paints or salt. The sound structures are both familiar and fearful.
Constraining randomness causes order.
