Abstract:

Inspired by his travels, wildlife, and recurring natural patterns, Beard draws and paints intensely colourful, detailed interpretations of the world around us. Included in this lavishly produced book are works made over the past 15 years, and a handwritten introduction that illuminates Beard's fascinating philosophy of the interconnectedness of life, art, and mathematics. This magnificent collection of drawings and paintings will have wide appeal, pleasing not only art aficionados, but those whose enthusiasms range from the environment to mathematics.
