If you had a passionate and enterprising math teacher, chances are that you saw how mathematics can be artistic in its own way. Sometimes it’s minimalistic, and other times it’s beautifully detailed and complicated. Since she has a background in mathematics and art, Katy Ann Gilmore decided to blend the best of both worlds.
Though currently based in Los Angeles, she received a BA in Mathematics, Art, and Spanish from the Greenville College in Greenville, Illinois. She also received an MFA in Visual Art from Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, California. This would help explain her rather unique approach toward art and mathematics.
In her own words, she says that she is heavily influenced by topography and the relationship between the two dimensional, perpendicular planes and their distortions into three dimensional space. Her work initially gives off the vibe of being rendered in 3D, but it’s done by hand and when viewed from afar, convincingly fools the eye.
