“I know numbers are beautiful. If they aren’t beautiful, nothing is.”
Numbers in the time of Corona
A debut collection of paintings
In the search for truth we often try to substantiate our theories with numbers, and then we label it as “the hard facts”. For millennia humans have found confidence in numbers and mathematics. The ancient Greeks believed it was the way to obtain knowledge, for them it could only be true if it was calculated.
Today countries across the globe are throwing numbers and math at their citizens to justify the policies they have created. Governments are grasping at these numbers the way a priest in the American deep south preaches the “gospel truth”. This collection was created to challenge the viewer and their concept of numbers in the search of truth.
