Painting: Oil on Canvas.
This is the third in a series of large oil paintings sized 200 x 200 cm on linen canvas. These paintings are paradigmical, in the sense that their premises and composition depends to a large degree upon decisions made by reference to a series of digits of the number pi in hexadecimal formulations. Each paintiing is made up of 16 stripes, painted in one of four directions across it.In this series the direction of each stripe, its width, color, and location, are determined in that manner. The paint is mixed with turpintine and medium to make each layer very thin and transparent, thus making the resulting image visibly multilayered. After applying the paint the canvas is arranged vertically so the paint drips down its surface, creating a streaming texture following the thread of the canvas. The painting is lightly varnished after finishing to draw forth the colors.
