Fibonacci inspired Abstract Art: Graphic Geometric Composition. Part of the 'Fibonacci Heads' Series.
"This series came about from the working elements for the Alan Turing portraits*
- I went off on a tangent..." (Artist: Czar Catstick)**
*In geometry, a golden spiral is a logarithmic spiral whose growth factor is φ, the golden ratio. That is, a golden spiral gets wider (or further from its origin) by a factor of φ for every quarter turn it makes.
Approximate logarithmic spirals can occur in nature (for example, the arms of spiral galaxies or phyllotaxis of leaves); golden spirals are one special case of these logarithmic spirals. A recent analysis of spirals observed in mouse corneal epithelial cells indicated that some can be characterised by the golden spiral, and some by other spirals It is sometimes stated that spiral galaxies and nautilus shells get wider in the pattern of a golden spiral, and hence are related to both φ and the Fibonacci series. In truth, spiral galaxies and nautilus shells (and many mollusk shells) exhibit logarithmic spiral growth, but at a variety of angles usually distinctly different from that of the golden spiral. This pattern allows the organism to grow without changing shape.
**This is a new series based on an earlier collection created several years ago. A brighter more colourful, 'Pop Deco' stylised series with bold bright colours and tighter shapes set against a soft canvas base. Created as artworks in their own rights - these individual pieces have been designed to work well together in a series or separately.
These artworks are available as a wide range of different sized editions only available via this site and 'Open Edition' prints in various sizes and formats via Saatchi.
