Maurits Srl created a video to explain the technical side of the seventeen symmetry groups. Three of my tessellations appear in there, dealing with three of these symmetry systems. Not my best work, but enjoy!Continue reading
Since M.C. Escher started popularizing “nested shape” tessellations, many artist have dabbled in the field. Some show a passing interest, yet still create with a very deep understanding of the rules of symmetry. Others can’t get enough and create constantly in this medium. Still other artists push the boundaries and explore off-spurs, into fractals, circle limits, non-repeating planes, animation, metamorphosis, pentagonal rules, morphing shapes, platonic solid tessellations, architecture, art shows, consumer products… Continue reading
The Android version of KaleidoPaint is finally finished and publicly available. I would like to share this spectacular and free app with the group Broug Atelier for Islamic Geometric Design.
Deciding which symmetry group to use for a specific design can be hit and miss. And try again. You can narrow it down Continue reading
This symmetry group is the last one for me to tackle. It has been a year since I started tessellating again, since I found the KaleidoPaint iPad app. Continue reading
It’s been a year last week, since I started drawing with the KaleidoPaint iPad app. I was avoiding this P6m symmetry group because of the tight space for drawing within and the abundance of mirrors. Continue reading
My first ever tessellation was accomplished using this P4g symmetry group. Continue reading
