Of course, the beauty is difficult to define, but I think that in simple terms, this is what makes you want to look at it over and over again (and not through as we usually do while looking at numbers) – symmetry or asymmetry, shapes, colors, etc., or even the idea behind it.
Below some beauty in numbers as I see it (paper 42×30 cm, acrylic).
I’m not a professional artist (technical, financial and legal background). A couple of years ago I started making art (drawings mainly) from numbers – 1, 2, 3 etc. in a row. Why numbers? It’s a very difficult question to which I have no precise answer. Coincidence of many circumstances. As of today, more than 400 works have been created. I called this project “Numbers as Art”. Yes, these two notions are not compatible at all, the very idea is absurd, etc., etc., but it turned out to be so natural to my soul and mind that nowadays I can’t stop and I’m literally falling deeper and deeper in love with thit project, the main goal of which is to show that numbers may look quite different from what you're used to and can be art themselves.
