Paired Macro/Micro Painting Update
posted by KimDavid on 14 June 2016

David last posted about the analysis he did on the snow samples he collected when we were here in March. I made 4 simple paintings to pair with each one of his collection sites: 1) Mountain Birch Forest 2) Birch Forest Transitional Zone 3) Alpine 4) Lake Here's a picture of the winter paintings in progress: Each painting is in a vertical format sized approximately 60 cm. x 40 cm. The next step is to create a twin for each landscape painting which incorporates the scientific findings for each site. I call these the "data paintings". The plan is to show each representational painting with its data painting twin as a diptych, so that the viewer may experience the landscape on a macro and micro scale simultaneously.
