Art Description

Painting: Enamel, Glass on Ceramic, Wood.

Made of hand painted, square ceramic tiles, each tile in this painting represents one day out of a full year. Each tile is color-coded to show the daily high and low temperatures, as measured by a single weather station in a specific location. After the painted tiles are mounted on a board, smaller glass tiles are added on top to represent days of precipitation. This process is slow, deliberate, and contemplative in nature. The resulting image is not determined beforehand, but rather revealed through the process of creation.

The use of heavy, industrial materials and geometric lines were chosen to contrast with the wild nature of weather. These pieces are intended as a meditation on the interaction of industry and climate, the abstraction of nature that occurs through scientific measurement, and the shared experience of the climate in our daily lives
