Born from equations on a chalkboard and mathematical exploration, the paintings of Michael Schultheis smudge layers of diagrams, transforming geometries and calculations into artistic visions, like the Breath of Menelaus below.
In his new exhibit, “Venn Pirouettes,” at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art WSU in Pullman, Schultheis (’90 Econ., Honors) breaks the confines between mathematics and art, blending their languages, in sculptures and surrealistic paintings.
