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.  Some mathmeticians may dispute, but I love the romance of perfect repetition affecting humanity.  I have been exploring old paintings that I find in the streets of Barcelona. 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 painting on street discarded paintings using the Fibonacci golden ratio formula.
