2013 Feb- Art and Math

September 16th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Today in GRACE Art, we learned about Art & Math. Mathematics is discovering patterns and relationships which are expressed in symbolic form, similar to how an artist creates a work of art using form and repetition of form to symbolize meaning.   The artist includes basic geometric shapes to give a sense of harmony to the objects and people in his work.  Many math concepts are very important in art such as proportion and perspective.  Some artists use very mathematical concepts in their art such as Cubism, tessellations and geometric shapes.
