Written in particles and waves

Written in Particles and Waves

Piece description from the artist

Abstract Acrylic painting, 16x 20 inch original, varnished acrylic on 1.5 inch deep cradled birch wood panel. The panel was sealed using Golden's GAC 100, an archival sealer and barrier layer. The painting was created in layers, alternating free form abstract expressionist ideas and techniques with tape masked hard edge techniques. Written in Particles and Fields is a study in yellow tonalities, with objects and patterns at various length-scales suggesting order at different length scales, granularity and self-similarity.

Many of the fine painted details are evocative of the symbols used for sinusoidal electromagnetic waves and for compressive waves. other fine details are meant to evoke particle probability waves. In some areas the details are more explicitly quantum mechanical, where the standing waves for atomic orbitals and molecular orbitals have been sketched in carefully.

"Text" is used in the painting, but the text of particles and waves is of course equations and operators. The Schrodinger equation features prominently, but a number of key Quantum operators are also in there along with the DeBroglie particle wave equation and the Uncertainty.

About Regina Valluzzi

Waltham, MA

Dr. Regina Valluzzi has an extensive scientific background in nanotechnology and biophysics. She has been a scientist in the chemical industry, a green chemistry researcher, a research professor at the engineering school at Tufts, a start-up founder engaged in technology commercialization, and a start-up and commercialization consultant.

Even during periods of intense activity as a scientist, Dr. Valluzzi has always held a strong interest in the visual arts and in visual information. While she majored in Materials Science at MIT, she also obtained a second degree in music and a minor in visual studies. Visual arts have managed to permeate her technical work; during her Ph.D in Polymer Science and Engineering at UMass Amherst, she completed a thesis that required advanced electron microscopy, image analysis, and theoretical data modeling. These experiences provided the visual insight and information that now influences much of her artwork.

Dr. Valluzzi’s work has been included in private collections across the US, UK, Germany, Canada, Japan, Netherlands, Switzerland, Bulgaria, Dubai and Malta, and in the corporate collection of "Seyfarth Shaw" Boston law offices around Boston. She has a selection of pieces on loan to the MIT Materials Science and Engineering Department as indoor public art. Her accomplishments include having published thirty articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals, having made several scientific patents, having been a subject matter expert for an encyclopedia chapter, and having been invited to speak at science talks across the US, Europe, and Japan.

Her newsletter is a good source of ongoing information: http://eepurl.com/daiLQ
