cosmology (1989)
pen and ink on arches paper, 19x13 on 30x22in.


being artist in residence at the kavli institute for theoretical physics at ucsb, i can nurture my long time interest in physics. the kitp is for me a wonderful source of contacts, talks, seminars, readings. theoretical physics obviously: cosmology, inflation, fields, flows, simulated gravitation, black holes, lensing, projection of higher dimensions space, instabilities, topology, are familiar sources of research and frequent motifs for my work. and the more playful, experimental physics: works generated with pendulums, waves, magnetism, sand, mechanical forces. the kitp has also often been an inspiration for physics centered illustrations and cartoons.

after my solo shows in 2003 and 2004, i have organized since 2006 a quasi yearly group art show at the institute gallery.
