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”

John says:

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”

Cindy says:

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.
