Continuity is a mathematical picture, originally produced in 1998 after I attended A&M 98, U of C, Berkeley. The painting was produced as 36 x 36 inches, acrylic on plexiglass which I had hand drawn with mechanical drafting tools and no computer. This particular version, I have produced in 2021 and in process from May through October. The work imagines oceanic waves after viewing diagrams of such waves. The result is an integration of mathematical curves; arc, circle, spiral, strophoid, polynomial function; and straight lines involving XY axis, diagonals with collineation. This image was used for the printed announcement for the exhibition Art & Mathematics 2000, The Cooper Union, New York, NY which I was Curator and Editor.
