The Flight of the Moth: What does fractal geometry have to do with Art?

Thursday, Oct 16th, 7:00 – 8:30 pm 

Join artist Ray Larrow for an enlightening, provocative and entertaining talk that will examine fractal geometry as it pertains to an intuitive painting process.  Ray will offer insights into his own paintings, while providing a thought provoking and unexpected perspective on the visual arts.

Among other things, Ray will touch upon the following questions:

How might a once obscure area of mathematics relate to an artistic intuition as it relates to executing brush strokes?

How might fractals relate to inventing one’s personal way of painting?

How might the wandering moth offer cues into a particular, calculative method of painting?

Admission to this talk is $15. Wine will be served.


The O’Keefe Studio Center is located at:

580 W. Arapaho, Suite 290, Richardson, TX 75080
