Kim Carlino (b. 1977, MI)
From the silence of nothingness arises forms that expand and contract, electrified with streaks of colorful lines, pendants, and geometrical shapes. Imagined universes arise and dissolve as I explore the tension between fluidity and rigidity. Harmony and balance can be achieved at a point somewhere between the two. At this meeting point lies equanimity, reflection and stillness within the infinite realm of the cosmos.
