I have dedicated my time and my work to the celebration of the subjective and poetic generated by visual information. Depending on the particular, I may use oil, acrylic, pencil as well as photography and digital technology. As an artist I believe each medium defines and encourages new original approaches of the unending exploration and appreciation of our visual environment.

Over the years, I have exhibited and lectured in many Academic Institutions and Science research centers to promote further the dialog between Art and Science. I strongly believe artists and scientist today can benefit greatly from a collaboration that redefines the terms of the esthetic experience of tomorrow.


Following are some examples of recent works that relate to series or - studies - I developped on particular mathematical problems. Click on the titles to access to the entire series.

1 - Hyperbolic Tiling. 14 tiling variations on a template by Bernie Freidin. Printed on canvas (22X22) and enhanced with oil pigments

2 - "Gems that never were" - 17 minimal surface originated from Dr. Richard Palais mathematical visualization software, 3D-ExplorMath. Dr Palais' software has been a great source of inspiration for my work over the years. Other series using 3DFilmstrip and 3D-ExplorMath: Filmstrips - Knots - 3D galleries

3 - "Pattern Recognition" 10 plates from the original research on pattern by M.Bongard and presented at National Center for Genome Resources, Santa Fe, in collaboration with mathematician Richard Kramer.

4 -20 Sangaku. Wasan geometry or traditional Japanese mathematics flourished around the Edo period and expressed itself in a unique way through mathematical votive pictures called San-Gaku. This tradition has slowly disappeared and today less than a thousand Sangaku have survived abandon or destruction. Modern technology and the internet has helped spread a worldwide revival of this unique form of expression.


1- hyperbole
2 - minimal surface
3 - pattern recognition
4 - fractal-sangaku
