About Paul Marquardt

I am a composer, software engineer and visual artist. My works are created using software of my own design. They capture imaginary lifeforms, landscapes and shapes and explore a dialectic between order and chaos, algorithm and intuition and constraint and freedom. I don't see myself as a traditional artist. In as much as I do not share the background and pedigree of most visual artists, my vision originates in pattern, complexity and abstract beauty. Though my work is created digitally, its full beauty comes alive in the physical medium, revealing an extraordinary world of detail and motion rendered in stunning detail and resolution. I live in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
