Mathematics is an unlimited source of inspiration and is the universal language of science and technology. Through Mathematical Art I am able to communicate with any person, independent of their language, because she understands the same thing that I capture on the canvas. I want those who stop in front of my paintings to be able to decipher what I am passionate about and made me create it, make mental calculations, understand the reason of each aesthetic decision.

Mathematics are to be discovered. They exist since the universe was created and they wait to be revealed. I want to discover its beauty.

The Malleus Maleficarum
50 x 50 cm

This artwork shows a Barth Sextic surface and white spheres. It was inspired on a jewel that is a black velvet choker with white pearls and a jet stone cameo, carved with a star.

It appears on the tale “Malleus Maleficarum” contained on the book “Las siluetas de Orwell y otros cuentos fantásticos” from Roberto Cuadros in which the central character wins an auction of a very old European trunk containing this jewelry.
