Klari Reis a fine art painter based in San Francisco. In her creative process, Reis uses the tools and techniques of science. Driven by natural curiosity, she feels a need to explore and document the natural and unnatural, all with a sense of wonder and joy.
Working in San Francisco, near one of the largest concentrations of life science companies in the world, allows the artist to take advantage of this proximity and collaborate with local biomedical companies. Reis takes inspiration from their cutting edge biological techniques and discoveries putting her work into a context that explores the increasingly blurred line between nature and technology.
In her work, Reis pigments UV-resistant plastic with powders, oils, acrylics and industrial dyes. The shapes and colours in her installations blend, blur and shift while the process of creation itself is one in a kind, bold use of science in the service of Reis’ art.
