Description

Visual Snow is a visual study of the interaction between creativity, logic, subconscious, and flesh. Visual Snow is the scientific term used to describe the representation of the light you can see when your eyes are closed. Some people say they see things such as faces, objects, or patterns when they close their eyes - this is what the artist was trying to convey through the painting.

More of less the act of painting this is an exercise or an attempt to understand what the artist's experience with visual snow has been once he started paying attention to it, through meditation.
