The Natural Geometry series explores the intersection of animal skulls and geometric forms, most often polytopes. These seemingly disparate elements allude to two distinct ideas.
The animal skulls represent memento mori, which are physical reminders of our mortality. The patterns that occur in the structure of some animal horns are natural expressions of some of the most beautiful geometry and are related to the ratio phi and the Fibonacci Sequence.
The more precise expressions of pure geometry juxtapose themselves against the more painterly animal skulls and these represent human consciousness and mankind's ability to find patterns in the world, our yearning to understand the physical universe, and our need to catalogue these ideas. These undertakings have created a sort of immortality for mathematicians and humankind in general, leaving behind a legacy of numbers and formulae and abstractions that, though they more precisely express the material world, may one day seem as simple cave paintings of horses to our descendants.
