Project Description

Painting Ratios

Project dedicated to discarded paintings.  There are theories that the eye and movement of an artist (or viewer) is naturally drawn toward the dimensions of the golden rectangle… Mathmeticians probably scoff, but I love the romance of perfect repetition manipulating humanity.  I have been exploring old paintings that I find in the street. Intrigued by the fact that somebody discarded an image, my desire is to find points of beauty inside something rejected.  What makes an image appealing?  This series is a geometric investigation of form and placement which involves cutting up and recreating street discarded paintings using the Fibonacci golden ratio formula.
