From the MATH TO BEAUTY Series—MATH TO BEAUTY is series of paintings employing the golden mean as a basis for the geometric compositions which the artist has come to call random symmetry. This fascinating ratio, frequently found in nature and geometry, is perceived by many to play a role in the human perception of beauty.So much has been written about the golden ratio, to the point that it’s hard to discern fact from fiction. But whatever the truth, the golden ratio has properties that has intrigued and inspired mathematicians, biologists, artists, musicians, historians, architects, psychologists, and even mystics for centuries."Using the golden ratio in the cavalier way that I do keeps me mindful of proportion. Just when I think it’s working along comes color to challenge my senses. In the end my intentions are to create beauty in my work. As the Greeks put it, the three ingredients to beauty are: symmetry, proportion, and harmony."—stephen cimini
