Geometric Sculptures Formed with Mathematical Equations


Australian artist Nike Savvas recently premiered many of her new works in a solo exhibition, entitled Liberty and Anarchy, at Leeds Art Gallery in the UK. The show was her first in over ten years, and featured a collection of brightly colored, large-scale pieces including several of these captivating geometric shapes.

For each design, Savvas used specific mathematical formulas to develop the three dimensional wooden structures. Once the frames were built, she then covered the openings with colorful patterns of wool that took more than a year to develop. The results are a series of variously sized and shaped geometric sculptures where lines and colors merge together in a vibrant display.

If you like this work, you may also enjoy Savvas's massive bouncy ball installation, entitled Full of Love and Full of Wonder.
