                 GEOM ART RY - Ralph Martel

  Professor Martel, City University of New York, College of
  Staten Island and a resident of Westbeth, addresses the
  question of whether a painting must have an order within its
  two-dimensional design. His paper argues that "there is in
  fact a geometrical order to painting, regardless of the
  particular form of expression. There is a deep structure that
  unites visual elements in a painting; one need only ask the
  right visual questions."

  PowerPoint presentations accompany the paper.
    - St. John Eats the Scroll
    - The Four Riders of the Apocalypse
    - The Sea Monster and the Beast with Lamb's Horns
