Pythagoras’s wife


“Pythagoras’s wife”

Mixed media/ October 2016

The piece was inspired by my brother. He really likes triangles. I wanted it to look like it was sketched with a pen, on the back side of some notebook from mathematics , of course ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. And you succeeded brilliantly!

  2. Wow. She’s really beautiful. I love that she’s purple. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you very much, I am really happy you like it! It is kinda hard for me to depict people and personas who were here long time ago. Pytha’s wife was also a prominent teacher, and did a lot of good stuff, which to me is beautiful, hence why I wanted to depict her as pretty as well!

  3. it has the quality of a movie poster ๐Ÿ™‚ love it!!

  4. This is absolutely brilliant, O. I’m speechless, really. F-ing brilliant! The concept- the execution…it’s just terrific. I’ve really missed your work lately!

    Hope your Christmas is a good one. ๐Ÿ˜‰ x

    • Holy Hell, I cant describe how happy I was to see your name pop up. Really just lots of hugs and happiest of holidays, and I am looking forward to once again following your work and see and hear what you’ve been up to!

  5. Great artwork and I love the title… I can see the hypotenuse too ! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Wishing you merry chirtsmas & a very happy new year 2017, dear Oloriel ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. This could be a title to a poem… in the spirit of carol ann duffy.

  7. Enchanting details. I like the triangles and the look of spilled grape juice too. A nice air of mystery.

    • Thank you, I am very glad you like it and thank you for the grape juice image, now I can see it that way as well! I have always been fascinated by videos of people creating art by spilling ink over traced water. I think this is “my way” of doing something similar to that, albeit not even closely as enchanting!

  8. Lovely!

  9. Great post
