“My work is motivated by my fascination with the occurrence of mathematical and scientific imagery in traditional art forms, and the mystical, spiritual or cosmological significance that is often attached to such imagery. I draw inspiration from mathematical themes, both overt and subtle, which appear in a broad range of traditional art forms: Medieval illuminated manuscripts, Buddhist mandalas, intricate tilings in Islamic architecture, restrained temple geometry paintings from Japan, complex patterns in African textiles, geometric ornament in archaic Greek ceramics. Often this imagery is deeply connected with the models and abstractions that these cultures use to interpret and relate to the cosmos, in much the same way that modern scientific diagrams and illustrations express a scientific worldview.”
