I'll have two pieces from my new Gertrude Stein series in the upcoming show "The Intersection of Art + Math" at Schack Art Center in Everett.
The series is based on the encoded poetry and prose of G. Stein. Using a basic Polybius square method, I translate text into a string of numbers, then into a visual grid, which I then work into various pieces of artwork. "Facts" (below) and "And Yes" will be on display through June 2.
From Schack's website:
"While math and art may seem like disciplines far apart, the Schack's upcoming exhibit helps demonstrate how mathematics has influenced art for centuries. The Intersection of Art + Math, presented in partnership with Art ꓵ Math by Seattle's Center on Contemporary Art (CoCA), offers a new perspective on how artists utilize math concepts and theories in the creation of their work. ....
The Intersection of Art + Math runs from April 26 - June 2, 2018, with an opening reception on Thursday, April 26 from 5-8pm...."
