Klari Reis uses the creative process in both painting and science as metaphors for one another : for curiosity and exploring and documenting the natural and unnatural world with a sense of wonder and hope.

Currently working in San Francisco, the artist recognizes that  Northern California hosts more life science companies than anywhere else in the world.  Klari Reis’ art work is a product of biological techniques, which provide context for the artworks and explore the increasingly fuzzy line between the technological and the natural.

Klari is grounded in actions and reactions with a new media plastic – epoxy polymer.  Similar to resin, the UV resistant plastic is her method and language for exploring and expressing interactions on a microscopic level.  Compositions offer brightly colored smears, bumps, stains and blobs atop aluminum and wood planes. She pigments the plastic with powders, oils, acrylics and industrial dyes through many layers of the ultra glossy plastic.  These bleed, blur, shift, and spread becoming remarkable through their eccentric detail.  A technician of sorts, studio as laboratory, Klari has turned the invented process into a science in the service of art.

She continues to develop the process and the exploration in her installation works, Hypochondria.  The projects consist of hand painted petri dishes mounted on the wall at varying distances in groupings of 150, 60, or 30 pieces.
