Exploring compositional solutions is a daily challenge in my world of creating art. When I look at the complexities of nature I try to simplify what I am seeing so I am able to explore the various possibilities of creating a pleasing compositions.
I use various tools to enhance the compositions in my work and one of my favorites is the Fibonacci Sequence, also know as Phi =1.618, the golden number, aka golden ratio. In 1202 AD, Leonardo Fibonacci wrote a book that explains the mathematical relationship behind phi. The sequence was know by Indian mathematicians as early as 6th century AD, but it was Leonardo who introduced it to the west.
If I look carefully and with introspect I find phi everywhere in nature. It really is quite fascinating to explore the many possibilities when reducing the complexities of nature to create a simple composition that radiates throughout my work,
Turning to nature and applying the golden ratio is not only used by fine artists in creating both 2D and 3D art form, but by architects, product designers and many others who create pleasing designs to enhance the lives of humankind.
In conclusion, I don’t want to mislead anyone to think I am some sort of mathematical wiz-kid. I am not. I do find phi very helpful in a rudimentary way when working out compositional solutions in my work, My goal is to create pleasing compositions that are subtle and at the same time distinct and to the point.
