my paintings

Postby greenseed » Mon Nov 13, 2017 9:46 pm

I read MC Eschers biography which had all of his art in it and was inspired by his geometric drawings

I also read a book called Symmetry about symmetrical mathmatics and other stuff...
i then also read the book Beginners guide to constructing the universe by this guy http://www.constructingtheuniverse.com/ about the archetypes and symbolism behind number and shape. I also bought his dvds and workbooks which are great...

these are some paintings ive made from that path i just layed out...

Hey greenseed

These are very interesting! I remember going through MC Escher's work as a kid, we had a big thick book full of things to trip on, lol

These are really powerful when considering ideas like sacred geometry, they actually emit some sort of energy or awareness just looking at them :shock:

What sort of ideas relating to 'archetypes and symbolism behind number and shape' inspires you personally for these? What part of those concepts resonate most with you?

That link looks cool... LOL @ the 'Activity Book'... I wanna do it! :D

My daughter came home some time ago talking about the golden mean and that spiral we can see in nature etc... she was really tripped out and impressed, you could tell she was recognizing some sort of deep truth that man has figured out

I think its interesting how seriously all the great architects and Masons etc took this stuff, they built it into everything. These are the building blocks of our Reality somehow.

Each number/shape has its deeper meaning for sure. The number 5 and the pentagon/gram resonates alot with me due to it containing the golden section/mean/ratio. im prety sure that's why it's so prevalent in civilization (flags, 5 star generals/hotels etc).

from http://www.constructingtheuniverse.com/geoman.htm
5: The Flag of Life

In starfish and flowers, corporate logos and flags, the number five and the amazing regenerative geometry of the pentagon and pentagram star appear in nature and human affairs as a sign of life (the flower of every edible fruit is five-petaled). It is a worldwide symbol of humanity, righteous authority, harmony, beauty and excellence. We can learn to recognize the five-ness of living forms, and see how artists from Egypt and Greece to Raphael and Dali have applied five-fold symmetry -- the flag of life -- to create harmony in their compositions.

This is cool stuff, greenseed

Both my daughter and I are shitty readers, but luckily the author you are linking to has done several interviews and video presentations. I will be diving into this for sure, this stuff always trips me out

Incidentally, how exactly do you paint with such precision with your physical limitations?
