Roundism (singularity) – 01-06-17 (sold)

Singularity is Infinity

In this drawing I tried to work out my artistic understanding of singularity. I came to see that hyperbolic curves bending towards but never touch straight structures could symbolize infinity on a piece of paper that is restricted by its very nature.

All physical matter is restricted and has a beginning and an end, clearly visible for everybody to see. But what if I would be able to break down such boundaries and offer people a glance at the infinitive, just as Buddha redeemed mankind by conquering death. Then I would be able to offer redemption if only for the sake of art.

Golden Ratio

Of late I started to rediscover golden ratio merits. Next to the ratio itself inducing aesthetics I am fascinated by the infinite quality of the ratio being an irrational number. By definition its decimal expansion does not terminate and my intuition tells me this phenomenon is the closest thing to infinity I can understand.

Mathematical Mumbo Jumbo

Even though I am not lousy at creating art I surely am at mathematics. I wonder whether the golden ratio and singularity, as expressions of the infinitive, do stronly correlate. In my non-mathematical mind both appeal to me though. Perhaps it is caused by my artistic instinct that evoked an evergrowing ambition to show the spectator to interpret an art work in infinitive possible ways, thus offering someone a look on infinity itself. Aforementioned redemption is synonym to infitity.
