Some elements in a sequence of shapes that a segment can do a U-turn in whose
area gets arbitrarily smallthe area is always equal to PI/4 — this is what happens when you play fast and loose with math. Apparently such a sequence of simply connected (no hole) shapes also exists, but I do not know itleft as an exercise for the reader. Thanks to mathani for the color pallette and his posts on the smallest convex shape and some other small shapes .
Opening this Thursday, June 5th at Roq La Rue Gallery in Seattle, Washington is Redd Walitzki’s solo show, “When We Break.” The mixed media paintings on laser cut panels depict ideas sparked from indie band Neutral Milk Hotel’s lyrics. The resulting ideas have become visual metaphors for a sort of “sand slipping through fingers” belief that we are unable to hold onto others existence or completely ascertain our own place in the universe.
The pieces are created through a labor intensive process that involves photographing models for reference, sketching them in watercolor, transferring them to digital forms, printing them out and affixing them to laser cut panels and lastly, finishing the piece with oil paints.
