The Golden Ratio
This is a series of artworks that I started working on in 2018.
I am developing and researching the harmony of perfect proportions, colors, tones, and shapes through precise geometry.
The cycle is deeply based around the abstract form.
The Ratio is the first mini-series that I, at a later time, escalated to a larger cycle named The Golden Ratio. It all started with Ochregreen - my first exploratory geometric painting which was made in 2018. The style of painting and gilded canvases each with crossing and merging lines that make a certain network is a basis for this group of artworks. Borders are made and broken. Through trial and error, I arrive at harmony, fixated on the values of order and balance. This series was heavily influenced by the legacy of Piet Mondrian.
Disharmony, disbalance, and chaos are the main drives of my creative expression. I cut, shape, trim and break. I am looking for harmony and order, balanced relations of the whole, of surface and color. I am searching for the organic and intimate. I distort the meaning of exact geometry relying on (un)precise dimensions.
We are imperfect creatures in search of our own order, peace, and balance. In the dark, we are scrutinizing our possibilities through gray and obscure areas, looking for meaning, a lighthouse, and path. When it presents itself - this path is very clear, it is the only possible route, like a golden line, guiding us to enlightenment.
