Studies for numerical painting _ 03.1991




Looking for patterns to extrapolate into paintings I accidentally discovered that if I wrote the last digit of multiples of the integers from 1-9 on a sheet of graph paper in sequential order it becomes a sort of mathematical mandala, with four quadrants separated by rows of 5’s and 0’s vertically and horizontally. The vertical and horizontal quadrants revealed in reverse and the diagonal quadrants as mirror images.
