hypocycloide

 



A simple figure is projected into something more complicated.

Hence the possible complexity of the shadow of a simple three-dimensional object when transfered onto a two-dimensional plan.

Modern mathematics tries to extract multidimensional equations from turbulences or other apparently chaotic systems.

Studying the curve of a chaotic movement, it is possible to release a new curve, this can be a hypocycloide.

The curve and this hypocycloide together form a "strangeattractor"

In my paintings, all the curves are fractions of hypocycloides.

If they were to be extended, these hypocycloides would form a symmetrical drawing that would darken the canvas almost entirely.

It is by selecting in a quasi-random way from a series of curves that I obtain the projection of a volume resembling more as coming from nature than from a mathematical construction.

Each one of my canvases reflects a harmonious image despite the feeling of movement and the proximity of chaos.

Is the living world a quasi-random selection in the symmetrical universe?
