Epiphany, original watercolour 1993, by Wayne Roberts



watercolour on cold-pressed 100% rag paper, 56cm x 76cm, © copyright 1995 Wayne Roberts. All rights reserved.

This watercolour, a rare piece from my own collection, is being made available to collectors. It intriguingly anticipated subsequent formal theory work that absorbed me for the next ten or so years—the theory of Covert Scale Structures, published in 2003 under the title, Principles of nature: towards anew visual language. You will note the grid-like pattern of interlocking forms. The grid consists of interfacing 'elements' like phonemes constructed of smaller self-similar parts; resonant with each other yet possessing a distinct identity. This allegorically pointed toward later works in which I developed a 'genetic or syntactical principle' in visual art and composition. (The above watercolour is presently unframed.)



Pythagoras Window, painting by Wayne Roberts

Pythagoras Window

Acrylic on stretched canvas, 45.5 x 60.5cm

This painting relates directly to two new mathematical theorems
I published in the book Principles of Nature. The new theorems
have a distinctly Pythagoras-like form and, together, broaden
the scope of Pythagoras' theorem itself. Hence the sky
revealed within this 'triangle-window'.
