I enjoy creating images that employ ideas from mathematical and philosophical sources. This new myth of mathematics and science is one that can inspire humankind to continue the heroic journey. My drawings consist of continuous forms, impossible objects, and stretched spaces within which discovery of the content in a new way may lead to the wonder of curiosity.
The Altar Screen
14" x 18"
pencil on paper
2012
The golden ratio defines the curve of the altar screen; additionally, the far right icon is a multistable perceptual phenomenon which alternates between foreground and background space. Lastly, the priest's robe consists of cross tessellations.
A Square for Penrose
18" x 14"
pencil on paper
2012
Isosceles right triangles mutate to form Reutersvard/Penrose triangles, of which these combine to form a hybrid multiple perceptual phenomenon square. Two hybrid creatures of ancient imagination look upon this spectacle with indifference.
Juncture
18" x 14"
pencil on paper
2012
Three multistable perceptual phenomena, cousins to the mathematical versions of the Necker Cube and other such phenomena, combine in an impossible way.
