Landscape Geometry


Since it was standardised by the Greek Euclid in about 300 BC geometry has underpinned our understanding of shape, form and the physical laws of nature. Images, which are important for our understanding of “things” are primarily made from a few basic shapes - triangles, circles and rectangles in various combinations. These are the building blocks of visual language. The ancients knew about this stuff. The belief that God created the Universe according to a Geometric plan has ancient origins and many churches, temples, mosques and pagan sites are built using the principles of Sacred Geometry.

This recognition of Geometry and how it influences shape and form in picture construction underpins much of my work. This is brought to the surface in my Landscape Geometry collection.
