"All is process. That is to say, there is ‘no thing’ in the universe. Things, objects, entities, are abstractions
of what is relatively constant from
a process of movement and transformation. They are like
the shapes that children like
to see in clouds."

— DAVID BOHM

Life, Beauty, Cosmos: Art by Sam Ilachinski
This site contains a sampling of (non-photographic) works by the man most responsible for instilling a lifelong love of art - any art - in me,  my dad. Sadly, he passed away in 2002. But his art, passion, and vision live on.

 

Lyntis Beard - Artist
The web gallery of a dear friend of mine, who shares a predilection for traversing vast, nonlinear spaces that intersect art and science. Lyntis and my dad are among the finest artists I have ever known.
