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 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.

Price: $72 (Including shipping and taxes)

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



Description: The painting 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.

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

Price: $216 (Including shipping and taxes)

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



Description: The painting features a non-regular tessellation made up of stylized shark fins. The red background reflects 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).

Math: Tessellations are a continuous tiling of matching shapes. Non-regular tessellations are made up of any shapes, geometric or organic. Tessellations 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: $60 (Including shipping and taxes)

Title: Instant Speed 3 on the Cartesian Plane (# IS_3_CB)



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 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, 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, 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.

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

Price: $48 (Including shipping and taxes)

Title: Upward Parabola 31 on the Cartesian Plane (# UP_31_CB)



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 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: Parabolas are graphs of quadratic equations. The painting displays the graph of y = 1/2 (x-7) + 1, 2.75 ≤ x ≤ 11.25. Thus, the parabola is wide, moved 7 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.

Title: Non-Regular Tessellation 772: Climbing Aircraft (# NRT_772_SP)



Description: The painting features a non-regular tessellation made up of stylized climbing aircraft. The light blue background reflects the calm sky.

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).
