GEOM ART RY (18 May 2003)
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.
