Sound Tree I

 

Sound Tree was inspired by the sound of electronic music. The auditory elements of Sound Tree such as its drum beats and bass notes generated unique images and visual structures in my mind. By letting my hands move as the musical beats directed, and drawing the types of images evoked by the rhythm, musical/auditory rhythm and beats was transformed into the visual images.

 #2: Acrylics, Watercolors, Micro Inks on Watercolor Paper 18"x24", 2012  In #2, the volumes and masses of units were replaced with linear lines which were rhythmically repeated, connected, creating other geometric images.  I utilized conventional painting materials such as acrylic, ink, and watercolor on paper.
