These non-objective oil paintings are created by utilizing basic visual mathematical principles; including four, five, and six color theorems, Euclidean and Lobachevskian geometry, diagonal asymptotic graphs, and linear one point perspectives, to emulate theoretical algebraic functions. However, I am much more concerned with adhering to theoretical mathematical guidelines to preserve the visual integrity of the paintings, than to strictly maintain the tenets of mathematical principles.
Limited palettes of color are then utilized with the principles of visual mathematics to create a visual experience similar to the psychological Rorschach tests from the 1960's, where the viewer brings their own experiences to the artwork. Heavy textured applications of oil paint are applied in a manner analogous to plotting points on a graph in amounts abundant enough to approximate sculpture. The thick texture becomes a representation of the z-axis on the graph adding a deeper mathematical and visual dimension to the work.
I am fascinated with, and highly intrigued by, how the manipulation of color mathematics, visual forms, and geometry creates such diversity of interpretation in the experience of the viewer.
