“Like a 3-D take on Jackson Pollock, this work by the Artist Martin Klimas begins with splatters of paint in fuchsia, teal and lime green,posioned on a scrim over the diaphragm of a speaker. Then the volume is turned up. For each image, Klimas select music – typically dynamic and percussive, like Stockhausen, Miles Davis or Kraftwerk – and the vibration of the speaker sends the paint aloft in patterns that reveal themselves through the lens of his Hasselblad. For this series, Klimas spent about 1,000 shots to produce the final images from his studio in Dusseldorf, Germany. In addition to the obvious debt owed to abstract expressionism, Klimas says his major influence was Hans Jenny, the father of cymatics, the study of wave phenomena.”
