Exhibit:  The Geometrical Foundation of Natural Structure

Jude Valentine says the genesis for this series of work originated in the book “The Geometrical Foundations of Natural Structure” by architect, mathematician and scientist Robert Edward Williams.

“I was interested in visually exploring in these prints how the numbers one through ten are manifested through nature and embedded in natural forms through symmetry and design. These pieces are inspired by geometric connections between elements – plants, animals, crystals, people and the landscape – as a geometric field that unifies diversity,” said Valentine.

Throughout her 30 prints – three for each number – Valentine highlights different foci of the theme, inviting viewers to consider the idea that geometry underlies matter on a microscopic and macrocosmic level. 

Artist Talk will take place at 6 pm, at a 5-7pm reception on Friday, March 28.
