Alan Turing Series**:
On 8 June 1954, Turing's housekeeper found him dead at the age of 41; he had died the previous day. Cyanide poisoning was established as the cause of death. When his body was discovered, an apple lay half-eaten beside his bed, and although the apple was not tested for cyanide, it was speculated that this was the means by which Turing had consumed a fatal dose. An inquest determined that he had committed suicide.
Andrew Hodges and another biographer, David Leavitt, have both speculated that Turing was re-enacting a scene from the Walt Disney film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), his favourite fairy tale. Both men noted that (in Leavitt's words) he took "an especially keen pleasure in the scene where the Wicked Queen immerses her apple in the poisonous brew".
Turing's mother believed that the ingestion was accidental, resulting from her son's careless storage of laboratory chemicals. Andrew Hodges theorised that Turing arranged the delivery of the equipment to deliberately allow his mother plausible deniability with regard to any suicide claims.
Conspiracy theorists pointed out that Turing was the cause of intense anxiety to the British authorities at the time of his death. The secret services feared that communists would entrap prominent homosexuals and use them to gather intelligence. Turing was still engaged in highly classified work when he was also a practising homosexual who holidayed in European countries near the Iron Curtain. According to the conspiracy theory, it is possible that the secret services considered him too great a security risk and assassinated one of the most brilliant minds in their employ.
This series has been updated, reworked and released as Digital Limited Editions only available via this site. The Alan Turing collection was the inspiration for my (still ongoing) Fibonacci Series of artworks.
Many artworks in this series include a collage of equations, binary code, Fibonacci numbers and pattern formations based on his experimental work on the Chemical Basis of Morphogenesis plus notes from Alan Turing's life.
An addition to 'The Great Reset' 10101 Collection. Artworks in this series were originally going to be part of the #2020Vision Retrospective Exhibition.
Above all, these images are created using the principles of colour theory.
That is to say, harmonious colour combinations pleasing to the eye and senses. Flat paint layers, typography, fibonacci curves, vector elements, photo-montage images and surfaces offset against textured canvas or flat pop art style backgrounds.
