This page was written in 2019. Since August 2019, I have been putting up my art work on instagram at @havcircles
instead of here. I also wrote this paper in 2020 about some of the concepts involved in the circle art work project described
on this page.
I gave this talk about this project for the online Bridges conference in 2020.
Variations on intersections of three circles
The above picture on the left shows 16 of the possible 165 cases. The above is acrylic on wood, 1.2 x 1.2 m, it's still
I seem to have a lot of unfinished projects on the go right now!
The picture on the right is an edited version of
a file with 157 cases, which was created using python to write a latex/tikzpicture file.
Here is a less pink version (blue lines). There are 8 cases missing from these
computer generated files, since 8 can't be drawn with centers only at three allowed points.
I am aiming to paint all 165 variations on this circle theme; also there are many other ways of combining them and interpreting.
These are the first few of the series, which I've been working on starting in January 2019. I've been doing these on 30cm x 30cm (12inch x 12inch) canvas in oil. Some of them are on 30cm x 90cm. Doing different themes for groups of them. Each series has a different title. Also planning large works with many of these images on one piece, developing relations and transitions between them.
I added a few that are just pen on paper, and a paper cut collage.
