This group of abstracts are geometrics. “Flat Earth Proof” is about tangents. “Nautilus” and “Out to Sea” are based on the Golden Ratio.
“Flat Earth Proof”
In Geometric paintings I like to design in pencil and then ‘dam off’ areas using thick masking fluid applied with a ruling pen. This creates areas where I can work in very wet and let the pigments find their own art. I get them wet to a flow state, drop in pigment, and use gravity and time to influence the result.
“Out to Sea”
John likes math. He likes to apply it to practical things, constantly seeking. I’m liking that his math skills (and passion for it) found a way into his art.
