Golf Shed Series No 17
Painting - Acrylic On Masonite
The series continues as I look at this composition as a kind of pattern that is related to the Greek golden mean and Fibonacci series of numbers. I think I will be doing this particular series for some time.
The Fibonacci sequence (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144 . . .) occurs throughout the worlds of nature, art, music, and mathematics!
Portrait of FibonacciEach term in the series is produced by adding together the two previous terms, so that 1 + 1=2, 1 + 2=3, 2 + 3=5, and so on. The sequence takes its name from a famous thirteenth-century European mathematician, Leonard of Pisa (?1170-1250), also called Fibonacci. Fibonacci was one of the first Europeans to use Arabic numbers, whose use he explained in his 1202 Liber abaci.
