Double Spiral Zoom – Sacred Geometry

 

This animation resembles the actual artwork more than the other manipulations I’ve created from this piece. The logarithmic spirals that emanate from the center allow me to smoothly animate this mixed media piece. The original piece was created using Pencil, Ink, and colored pencils.

Star of Life – Sacred Geometry

 

This gif makes use of my acrylic and ink piece “Transcendental Parallelograms”. Watch as the golden ratio parallelograms morph into petals over and over again.

Sunflower Burst: Zoom 1 – Sacred Geometry

 

I used my original piece “Purple Sunflower Burst” to make this gif. I first established the golden ratio spiral pattern in pencil then I added ink. After that I painted with acrylic in many thin layers called glazes. This infinite zoom shows the multiple levels of spirals that can be interpreted when the spheres are arranged to approximate the golden ratio.

Torus Zoom – Sacred Geometry

 

The seventh in our February 2016 series of GIFs by artist Ansel Bickerton.

Only taking one sitting to be realized, this piece came together so fluidly. It is a mix of acrylic paint, colored pencil, and ink all animated in a way that it grows infinitely from itself. I really liked the infinite zoom effect and had to apply it to this painting!

Flower of Life XIII – Sacred Geometry

 

Each .gif originates from a mixed media painting (acrylic, ink, and colored pencil) from my most recent set of ten flower of life paintings. By shifting the colors I feel as though these really breathe.
