Since I share a secondary classroom with a (believe it!) geometry teacher, I
want to integrate math into my art some. I was thinking of the logic involved
in the Right Brain exercises, and other artists who have worked with logic,
math. principles and theories. Much of Betty Edwards has always reminded me
of 'if A=B and B=C then A=C.' Has anyone done this? I am trying to avoid
tesselations (too direct of an application for me) and going for more logic
and theory. Some examples I had were Kandinsky and his music theories, Bach
Inventions, Nonwestern logic as in reading painting r to L, Klee and his
humorous twists (twist of logic), certain perspective drawing principles,
Conceptual art like Christo being pure logic, pure theory.
