MY COMMENTS:
Impression of the Galois Group Q(sqrt 2). Obviously an abstract interpretation of the mathematical group. Strictly mental visions. I have to say that the detail and colors are not coming through the computer image as they are in reality.

MY QUESTIONS FOR THE GROUP:
Whatever anyone wants to say, I welcome.

This critique forum is mostly about realist depictions and traditional methods of art-making. Contemporary conceptual art is a bit of a stretch. However i believe conceptual art can have a large atheistic element and it is this area that i find this forum very enlightening. I think your mathematical approach to generating art ideas interesting and look forward to your critiques on experimentation and creating interest in a work.

Not sure what you are looking for but I have done a rough photoshop on your image and added some tone. Maybe it adds a decorative element and some visual interest to it.

Hi. Very Nice!.:thumbsup: Was wondering if it will read the same without the title.

Like it a lot. I just would prefer a color, or black, to the white. I don't think that would compromise the math rule. But I do like it, and I've tried several "math" related pieces and have yet to come up with something. But I'll keep trying. But you've accomplished a piece that is very interesting. I had fun rotating this piece to see the results, it's interesting to see how it changes just by rotating it.

Again, like it.

Very interesting and beautiful. I have to say I understand your painting a lot more than the internet search's explanation of "Galois Group Q(sqrt 2)"

Visually I really like ra's suggestions, they give us a more interesting image. One can also see why the large 'colored cheerio' pops out as a focal point in all the similar shapes. It falls on a hot spot in the 'rule of thirds'...

haha, this is my kind of math!
lively and fun and i like all the wild color choices
i do prefer a bit of color in the winding white section
bigger would be good too, and smaller, and fully square

good one
