Sonia Delaunay Geometric Patterns c.1930

"Sonia Delaunay (November 14, 1885 – December 5, 1979) was a Jewish-French artist who, with her husband Robert Delaunay and others, cofounded the Orphism art movement, noted for its use of strong colours and geometric shapes. Her work extends to painting, textile design and stage set design. She was the first living female artist to have a retrospective exhibition at the Louvre in 1964, and in 1975 was named an officer of the French Legion of Honor. Her work in modern design included the concepts of geometric abstraction, the integration of furniture, fabrics, wall coverings, and clothing."

"Why geometry?I love geometry. Lines, curves, rectangles, circles, triangles are a simplification of our real world but also their building blocks. Geometry, like physics or mathematics, defines how our world is constructed. I find endless beauty in this construction. I see god in there" by Tilman, an interaction and graphic designer living and working in and near Nuremberg, Germany.

Geometric Art by Mary Webb

This weekend I visited 'Journeys in Colour' an exhibition by Suffolk based artist Mary Webb at the Sainsbury Centre UEA Norwich

I'd never heard of her before, but her Patrick Caulfield meets Bridget Riley style is boldly imposing. Some big pieces too, walking into the main exhibit room graphically punches you between the eyes. The exhibition continues until 26 Feb 2012.

Artist Statement
"My work is characterized by geometric forms interacting with organic marks. This is seen in a variety of ways, such as a rigid line next to a loose application of paint or gradient. I notice these relationships in nature as well; a tree breaking through a concrete sidewalk, or a housing development by a river. I want to examine these relationships between natural and built landscapes, conjuring a new sense of place. By confronting the viewer’s perception of landscape, I aim to question how these unceasing amalgamations change how we identify with our environments, and perceive ourselves in them."
