"Fermat Point"

Acrylic on canvas, 20” x 24”, 2008.

The Fermat Point of a triangle is the point of least total distance from the vertices of a given triangle. The painting depicts that the Fermat Point of a triangle can be obtained by constructing equilateral triangles on each side and then joining the vertices of the original triangle and the equilateral triangles. It also shows that circles with the sides of the triangle as chords also intersect at the Fermat Point.

It is very interesting when certain theorems and axioms are embodied not only in book pages, but also in our cultural life. Thus, the triangle is no longer seen as something distant, but as something majestic. If you also want to join such art, you can always apply for special programs and competitions, but don't forget about the presentation, so use the professional letter writing service.

"I seek to depict interesting mathematical truths, curiosities and puzzles in simple, visually descriptive ways. Mathematical amusements inspire the color and form in my paintings, and I try to strike a balance between the simplicity of the concepts and their depiction in art. The logic and balance of the discipline is beautiful, and I like art that both stills and stimulates the mind – these are the qualities I strive to capture in my work."
