"Atmospheres are a collaborative effort between Cheryl Myrbo and Tim Settimi beginning in 2003. Myrbo, the colorist, chooses a palette and lays in the atmosphere. Settimi, the engineer, finds and develops volumes and spatial relationships in the value changes, modeling these relationships as aquatic, molecular or planetary structures. The attractions and tensions are illustrated and, together, Settimi and Myrbo gild and refine the final work leaving a little room for the viewer’s imagination."
