Penrose Tiling (circle limit), 2019
Works by Kevin Cain
"The world looks just a little more mathematical and regular than it is; its exactitude is obvious, but its inexactitude is hidden: its wildness lies in wait." G.K. Chesterton
For this show, we take Canessa back to its 19th C. origins as the Canessa Printing Company with a Rube Goldberg mechanism capable of scribing large panels with intricate drawings.
Over the month of August the mechanism will perform, slowly but deliberately filling the Canessa with geometric prints built from Penrose stairs and tiles, as well as varied Islamic patterns of many kinds. Gallery goers are invited to take strips of these tiled drawings with them
