PORTRAIT OF AN ARTIST: KLARI REIS

48599_2015-03-12_KlariReis-Edit-2-Med

Klari Reis in her SOMA studio.

It was great reconnecting with Klari Reis a few weeks ago. We met through a mutual friend and immediately I was drawn to her easy going demeanor and prolific travels. Klari utilizes epoxy polymers to experiment with color, shape and texture. By using a variety of dyes and pigments, Klari is able to create unique patterns and textures – a beautiful marriage of science and art. And while her completed works are displayed on the walls, beautifully lit by gobs of natural light, I couldn’t help but look down. The floors are covered with spilled dyes in all different colors and form a work of art all on their own.

For more information on Klari’s work, visit her website here.

Double Trouble

Since it’s been so nice out recently here in the Bay Area, I’ve been out and about with the kids a lot! And, naturally, a camera. These few photos come from experimenting with double exposures, an interesting and cute way to capture warm summer memories with my children.

Life Drawings

 

reclined nude watercolor

Cleaning out the garage the other day, I found a bunch of old life drawings that I hadn’t documented before. These come from the days where I focused my creative energy towards fine art, and creating my vision of these subjects. I’m really excited to have uncovered these, it’s a treat to see where I’ve come from artistically! Check out more below. (ps, they’re for sale!)

Fish Tales

For the fish story I shot awhile back, I was inspired to be creative with the portfolio piece.  I got the idea to match the presentation of the book with the subject matter.  I used the actual waxed cardboard box the fish came in (I dug out of the dumpster behind Tokyo Fish Market) as the cover of the book , sinew as the binding cord and brown paper as wrapping.  It was fun to learn Japanese stitch bookbinding for this project. Im quite pleased with the results.  To see the Fish Tale images, click here.

Stanford Medicine Magazine

The art director of Stanford Medicine Magazine, David Armario had seen a series of abstract photos I created a while back and asked to use an image for the front cover. This is the image they chose. I love the look and design of this magazine. And I’m happy to be a part of it.

The basic concept was derived from a video I saw of a chemistry experiment involving detergent, milk and food coloring.  I did my own experiment and the results were quite interesting.  It’s amazing how something so simple can create such striking imagery.
