The White Garden at Sissinghurst Castle, 17.25×10″

In high school and college, plane and analytic geometry were among Cy’s favorite subjects “because of the way everything fits together,” and he has continued to explore geometric concepts as a form of visual expression. He has a particular affinity for the 30-60-90 triangle and the way this configuration appears in nature, creating a multiplicity of complex forms like the patterns of snowflakes. Cy calls these triangles “nature’s brick” and has used them to create a series of abstract flowers, even an entire garden inspired by the famous White Garden at Sissinghurst Castle in England. See Nature’s Brick video to the right.
