The Geometry of Archimedes: Paintings by Michael Schultheis opens October 14 at Wentworth Institute of Technology

In this series of images, Seattle-based artist Michael Schultheis, a painter with professional training in and a fascination with mathematics and economics, explores the geometry of ancient Greek mathematician Archimedes of Syracuse (c.287-212 BCE), and transposes his ideas into symbolic and visual language. “As humans,” says the artist, “we have a fascinating capacity to visualize mathematics. Our analytical concepts can be rendered visually in our minds, written down in notation, and then shared as a logical and visual language for others. These creative ideas are timeless and universal – and the world I explore while painting.”
