2019 | Reception & Performance with Artist Michael Schultheis: January 24, 4:30-6:30 p.m.

Artist and Washington State University alumnus, Michael Schultheis finds dynamic synergies in the languages of math and art. An economist and mathematician, with experience in the academic and corporate worlds, Schultheis employs analytical formulae within his luminous paintings. While the equations themselves offer a form of mathematical purity, Schultheis’ art subjugates this precision into imperfect visions, leaving room for metaphor, storytelling, and beauty. His canvases often have the appearance of chalkboards filled progressively with mathematical notations and three-dimensional geometries, that pay homage to Greek mathematicians Pythagoras, Plato, Aristotle, Euclid and Archimedes. Fusing the abstract and observed, the rational and the experiential, Schultheis has forged an interdisciplinary, even holistic, practice, connecting us all in its expression.
