"I use the Fibonacci sequence in my paintings.
Fibonacci was one of the most important mathematicians in the Middle Ages. He pointed out a series of figures that do not need to be memorised. The sequence starts at zero + 1; and you add the last two figures to get the subsequent numbers: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89,… There are other interesting characteristics. When you divide the bigger number by the smaller one, you get the “golden number”: 1,618033988. So, 13/8 = 1.625 ; 21/13 = 1.615… ; 34/21 = 1.61904…etc. The greater the numbers of the division, the closer you get to the “golden number”.
The “golden number” has been a famous number since the Antiquity among architects, mathematicians and artists as it is said to reflect harmonious shapes and proportions.
For my current paintings, I rely only on figures from 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8 which add up to 20. In total freedom. Since I can use each unit on vertical or horizontal lines, or in spirals. On the computer.
I use basic colours : black, white, grey and also yellow, red and blue. For each picture, I select the colours according to visual links – for instance, the complementary contrast between light and dark, hot and cold or the space created by the colours themselves.
I aim to balance the contrasts so that no single field of colours dominates. The viewer can then reflect over these links by gazing at them."
