Though I'm a nonmathematician, my work originates in intuitions which have consistently led to an art of visual mathematics. Such an art obviously has a special resonance for scientists and mathematicians, but being visual, it can be just as immediately engaging for general audiences. Its patterns invite mathematical analysis, but require none, and need only be seen as music need only be heard. The elegant economy found in the forms and dynamics of nature has always been an inspiration to me, and I have aspired in my work only to that profundity which might arise from subtle analytic rigor, much in the manner of science. Images of sculptures I have created over the last fifteen years can be seen in the following galleries. The galleries are devoted to representative works from distinct paradigms appearing in chronological succession up to present.
