Kira Vollman, is a longtime contributor and collaborator in both the art scene and the experimental music scene in Los Angeles. Vollman is a multi-disciplinary artist who uses process and materials in works that are experiential and experimental. She combines painting, photography, sculpture, sound and repurposed scrap and surplus materials to create poetic landscapes and soundscapes. At times she brings all of these elements together in one piece. Drawing upon her background as a composer and musician, she often incorporates inter-active sonic elements into her installations and wall sculptures.
Vollman is also the owner and Curator of ARK • Gallery and Studios in Altadena. ARK is gaining a reputation for its concert programming and art exhibitions. As curator, Vollman aims to provide a venue and a platform for sonic and visual art explorations.
