Title: Pseudo-Hologram 31: Cubes (# PH_31_SP)


(Click here to enlarge)

Description: The artwork features an array of colored cubes floating in Aristotle's aether.

Specifications: 12 in by 16 in by 3/4 in (30.48 cm by 40.64 cm by 1.90 cm) giclee print on archival-quality gallery wrapped canvas (unframed).

Math: A pseudo-hologram is a 2-D rendering of a 3-D object, which is created digitally using an application like XenoDream (an industrial-strength, 3-D graphics application) and which is created, unlike true holograms, without lasers. The term is taken from the Greek words pseudo (false), holos (whole) and gramma (message). Holography was developed by Dennis Gabor in 1947.

Freebie: Includes a one-page write-up of the math behind the artwork (Downloadable PDF).

Price: ONLY $60 (Including shipping and taxes)

Title: Upward Parabola 32 on the Cartesian Plane (# UP_32_SC)



Description: The painting features an stylized graph of an upward parabola displayed on the Cartesian plane. The style of the painting parallels the style of the Dutch artist Pieter Mondrian, but the design is based on mathematics.

Specifications: 12 in by 16 in by 3/4 in (30.48 cm by 40.64 cm by 1.90 cm) acrylic painting on archival-quality, gesso-primed, 100%-cotton, gallery wrapped canvas (unframed).

Math: Parabolas are graphs of quadratic equations. The painting displays the graph of y = 1/2 (x-9.5)2 + 1, where 5.25 ≤ x ≤ 13.75. Thus, the parabola is wide, moved 9.5 units to the right, and moved 1 unit up.

The parabola is shown on the 1st quadrant of the Cartesian plane.

Freebie: Includes a one-page write-up of the math behind the painting (Downloadable PDF).

Title: 2-D Euclidean Shapes 881: Mexican Motif (# ES_881_LP)



Description: The artwork blends selected geometric figures (rectangles, isosceles triangles, squares, and circles) with the 'glitz' that is associated with the Mexican culture.

Specifications: 24 in by 36 in by 3/4 in (61 cm by 91.4 cm by 1.9 cm) giclee print on archival-quality gallery wrapped canvas (unframed).

Math: In geometry, a plane is a flat surface with no thickness and no boundaries. Shapes are figures that are drawn on a plane and that feature well-defined properties such as surface area and perimeter. Euclid (c. 300 BC), a Greek mathematician, who is known as the 'father of geometry,' first defined the characteristics of geometric shapes.

Title: Non-Regular Tessellation 31 (# NRT_31_SB)



Description: The painting features a non-regular tessellation made up of colorful isosceles triangles within squares.

Specifications: 12 in by 16 in by 1/8 in (30.48 cm by 40.64 cm by 0.32 cm) acrylic painting on archival-quality, gesso-primed, 100%-cotton, canvas board (unframed).

Math: Tessellations (from the Latin tessella, that is, mosaic) are a continuous tiling of matching shapes. Non-regular tessellations are made up of any shapes, geometric or organic. Tessellations, which date back to antiquity, were popularized by the Dutch artist Maurits Cornelis Escher.

Freebie: Includes a one-page write-up of the math behind the painting (Downloadable PDF).

Price: ONLY $48 (Including shipping and taxes)

Title: Random Circles 31 on the Cartesian Plane (# RC_31_MP)



Description: The artwork is based on a discrete uniform distribution and displays circles with randomized sizes and xy positions (where -0.5 ≤ x ≤ 23.5 and -0.5 ≤ y ≤ 17.5) on the Cartesian plane. The style of the painting parallels the style of the Dutch artist Pieter Mondrian, but the design is based on mathematics.

Specifications: 18 in by 24 in by 3/4 in (47.5 cm by 61 cm by 1.9 cm) giclee print on archival-quality gallery wrapped canvas (unframed).

Math: The notion of randomness is not new. In antiquity, the Chinese (c. 3000 BC) and the Greeks recognized randomness. And, in 1888, John Venn, an English logician, addressed the topic in his book The Logic of Chance.

A discrete uniform distribution is a distribution in which a finite number of outcomes are equally likely to happen. The probability of happening is P(X)=1/n, where n is a finite number of outcomes.

Title: Instant Speed 3 on the Cartesian Plane (# IS_3_SB)



Description: The painting features an stylized graph of the average and instant speeds functions displayed on the Cartesian plane. The style of the painting parallels the style of Dutch artist Pieter Mondrian, but the design is based on mathematics.

Specifications: 12 in by 16 in by 1/8 in (30.48 cm by 40.64 cm by 0.32 cm) acrylic painting on archival-quality, gesso-primed, 100%-cotton, canvas panel (unframed).

Math: The painting displays f(x) = (x/4)2, where 0 ≤ x ≤ 16. That is, the average speed is f(x/4)2/x, which is increasing, and the time elapsed spans from 0 to 16.

The painting also displays df/dx=x/8, where x=8. That is, the instant speed at x=8, which is the slope of the tangent line at x=8 and which is 1.

The two speed functions are shown on the 1st quadrant of the Cartesian plane.

Title: Non-Regular Tessellation 773: Shark Attack (# NRT_773_SP)



Description: The artwork features a non-regular tessellation made up of stylized shark fins. The red background represents the bloodied waters.

Specifications: 12 in by 16 in by 3/4 in (30.48 cm by 40.64 cm by 1.90 cm) giclee print on archival-quality gallery wrapped canvas (unframed).

Title: Non-Regular Tessellation 774: Nostalgia (# NRT_774_SP)



Description: The artwork features a non-regular tessellation made up of the Pan Am logo. Pan Am -the flagship U.S. carrier- is long gone, but never forgotten.

Title: Open Cube 31 on the 3-D Cartesian Space (# OC_31_SC)



Description: The painting features an stylized cube floating on the 3-d Cartesian space. The style of the painting parallels the style of Dutch artist Pieter Mondrian, but the design is based on mathematics.

Specifications: 12 in by 16 in by 3/4 in (30.48 cm by 40.64 cm by 1.90 cm) acrylic painting on archival-quality, gesso-primed, 100%-cotton, gallery wrapped canvas (unframed).

Math: A cube is a three-dimensional figure which is box-shaped and has six congruent square faces which meet each other at right angles. A cube has eight vertices and 12 edges. And, a cube is one type of hexahedron and is one of the five Platonic solids.

The painting displays a cube open on three sides; the cube is shown on the 1st octant of the 3-D Cartesian space.

Freebie: Includes a two-page write-up of the math behind the painting.
