Dorothea Rockburne: Materializing Mathematical Concepts into a Visual Form
The Evening Lecture Series is free and open to the public. With inquiries, please contact Kara Carmack at email@example.com.
NY-based artist Dorothea Rockburne (b. Montreal) trained there at the École des Beaux Art where she learned the Golden Mean proportion. At Black Mountain College she studied with renowned artists Philip Guston, and Franz Kline et. al. Professor Max Dehn, renowned mathematician, awakened her interests in astronomy, and cosmology. Rockburne’s fascination with ancient-Egypt’s use of proportion, light, and mathematical structure determines the way she paints, folds, and creates works of art. Selected museum exhibitions include the MoMA NY, Parrish Art Museum, and the Rose Art Museum. Rockburne is represented in the collections of the MoMA NY, Metropolitan Museum, Parrish Art Museum, Guggenheim NY, and the Whitney Museum.
