Re: Math Squares for Art!

I really enjoy these and, mathematically, these are so simple that even I can understand them. :- 0 But I always enjoy painting this particular genre of painting.

Remember that mathematics and art aren't the same thing. But to be honest, I think you're pretty gifted.

Re:

Thanks for the generous comments.

Oh, yes, I think you're right. Math is rational though there is some "hunches" played, I think, and a bit of non-rationality involved.

And the Arts tend to be more intuitive and non-rational.

Just would like to see more work between the two. Naum Gabo and his brother Antoine Pevsner did not necessarily use math but their sculptures were the results of a good craft that appear mathematically inclined.
