Ellen Picken Geometric Artist
The integration of art, architecture, and environment is key to my public work. I use geometry to describe the patterns of our behavior and natural phenomena. A line can take on multiple characteristics, from motion and sound to volume and depth. Repetition and continuity can imply rhythm, balance, progress, or stasis. These visual cues can affect a person's perception of space and their place in it. [from the artist's website]
