A note about the Mathematical Gallery

Mathematics, for me, is a spiritual practice.  To engage in mathematical study is to travel into strange and mystical lands, to explore the very fabric of reality and illusion, and to uncover secrets which hold even deeper secrets within them.
 

When I set to work with an HB pencil, ruler and compasses, it is in a spirit of both discipline and playfulness.  The connection of lines and circles on the paper can suddenly lead to three-dimensionality, or an unexpected glimpse into infinity.  These images are given life with richly toned markers, gel pens and ink liners.  I choose colours with the same combination of artistic freedom and mathematical precision that I use for the initial outline - creating an intricate and glimmering world.
