A Collaboration between art and math


PAUL VINCENT BERNARD graduated from the University of Utah in 1995 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. He is a Salt Lake City printmaker and painter who creates minimalist landscapes inspired by abstract shapes, paths, and margins found in our spare Utah geography. Dark monoliths and deep black forms are threaded with slender fissures, edged in loose fast scrawls, often jutting into the merest slip of pale horizon.

Working in dual media allows Bernard’s sensibilities as a painter to inform his printmaking, while his etchings frequently have a painterly feel. His inks: deep, matte, light-absorbing blacks, are frequently painted onto enamel-coated printing plates or painted panel that are then scratched, rubbed, and scribed-upon in a way that gives the finished piece gravity and energy.

RANDEE LEVINE Levine earned her BFA from State University of New York at Purchase. She studied Color Theory with Sewell Sillman (considered one of the most influential teachers of the visual arts in the 20th century). Her work follows the abstract expressionist movement wherein the laying down of one paint stroke informs the next. Through this process of making gestures, she responds viscerally to the language of each canvas.

Simultaneously, her New York roots emanate in the form of the occasional graffiti–like word or text. Floating in and amongst this script the viewer grasps fragments of thought, drawing further contemplation. Tribal-like figures and lively abstracts join force and the culmination of these elements allow one to get lost in a symphony of color, form, and gesture.

“Blending Art and Math,” 6th-grade students from the McGillis School will partner with Phillips Gallery artists to inspire, inform, and create works of art as they learn to summarize numerical data sets and analyze measures of variability. “What the heck does art have to do with math?” asks an anonymous 6th grader. Let’s find out!
