Geomitica – the Mythology of Shape – Adrian Fisher

Adrian Fisher’s Geomitica literally means “the mythology of shape”.

It creatively combines surface shapes with artistic and allegorical narrative. Parables and symbolism abound. Geomitica unleashes our spirits and lets them soar.

The essential set of shapes are capable of astonishing feats of design.

Each square and triangle in the Geomitica series only needs a few pieces to form the next size up. How do they achieve such tiny increments in size?

Regular tiling systems simply don’t do this.

What are the key geometric principles for creating tiling patterns?

Form follows function, so different applications dictate different geometric systems.

Decorative paving, vibrant tilings and acrylic paintings broaden the scope of Geometric art.

What further manifestations may we expect in future?

This is an art form whose geometric discipline becomes an underlying strength.

It reaches across the frontiers between abstract art, hidden symbolism and vibrant imagery
