Expressing Abstract Mathematical Concepts Through Art 

Anatoly Fomenko is a distinguished Russian mathematician, professor, well-known topologist, supporter of radically revising historical chronology, and it turns out, very talented at expressing abstract mathematical concepts through artwork. “Since the mid-1970s, Fomenko has created more than 280 graphic works. Fomenko description of his technique probably sounds unlike anything that most of us have ever previously heard or learned about drawing. He never starts with rough sketches, copies, or outlines. Rather the final drawing appears all at once as a clean copy. “Each mark is final, and my hand does not return to it again”. He compares his technique to the process of developing a photo “like using a rag to wipe a thick layer of dust from a picture that already exists”.

One can consider these images to be photographs of a strange, powerful, and fantastic mathematical world—one that exists, regardless of how we perceive it, according to its own special laws

““It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”

My name is Kevin. I am a photo student based out of New Paltz, New York. Generally, my work is a direct approach to looking at spaces. My work has started to become more formal, with detailed attention to the composition. Lately, I have also been documenting the local people and culture as I travel. I hope to travel the country and world after I graduate and build a large body of work. I shoot primarily in film with a 4x5 view camera or 6x7 medium format camera as well as digitally.
