DESCRIPTION

It has been over ten years since Richard Purdy’s last show. From December 17, 2015 through January 23, 2016, his wax encaustic paintings, based on Stephen Wolfram’s book, “A New Kind of Science,” will be on view. Purdy utilizes a simple mathematical formula to create his compositions, based in Wolfram’s cellular automata. Rather than fill the squares in his grid with numbers (a la Wolfram) Purdy fills his with a dazzling array of color.
