I am interested in the history and use of geometry in the aesthetics of classical Western art, in particular, the creation of harmonious form by the use of a repeated proportion. I use the principles of classical geometry when deciding on the overall dimensions of my work. I use the principles of fractal geometry as constraints when deciding on the outcome of the forms. The principles of repeated proportions and self-similarity used in the work mean that the patterns and forms could be endlessly repeated as the pattern is replicated in the form and the form can become part of a larger pattern.
