Visit Doug Bosch's exhibit, Catenaria, which combines geometry, mathematics, physics and aesthetics.
Tuesday, January 21, 2014
Power lines, strung from pole to pole, create a hypnotic dip and rise. This gentle curve, described scientifically as "catenary," inspires artist Doug Bosch's new exhibition, "Catenaria," at Lesley University's VanDernoot Gallery.
Exploring the catenary as image and sculptural form, Bosch merges the worlds of art and science by mining this fundamental principle of geometry, mathematics and physics and infusing aesthetics.
"My inventions reference early scientific experimentation, eclectic collections and the accouterment of the natural sciences," Bosch says of his artwork. "Many works are finite in presentation, with clearly-defined edges and boundaries, but also allude to having been extracted from another source and sampled from an infinite collection of forms and repeating patterns."
"Catenaria" is curated by Andrew Mroczek, Director of Lesley's VanDernoot Gallery.
The exhibit is free and open to the public
Thursday, January 30, from 6 to 8 pm.
