This small portfolio of paintings, Trigonometries, is named after the branch of mathematics that studies relationships between triangles' side lengths and angles. As an aspect of my more broad interest in mathematics, I especially enjoy how, in many cultural art traditions, triangles are used. Symbolically when triangles face upwards, they represent action and energy, and when triangles face downward, they represent creativity and the pursuit of knowledge.
