MADE IN TWO PLACES • Paintings by EC

 

The thought of the universe is dual. It is logically intellectual, directing the regularly functioning universe. In the second place it is emotionally directing the manifestations of the universe towards life. We might say it is masculine. We might say it is feminine. Together, in inseparable co-operation they both constitute the duality of logic. When life is born it is born in the co-operation of this duality and because of this duality. At the birth of life the inclinations to both the logically intellectual and the logically emotional are bestowed upon life. The process of life is to be found in the co-operation of intellectual and emotional logic. – E.Saarinen, The Search for Form in Art and Architecture.

The Divine Proportion, or Golden Section, has many relationships and properties found in nature, art, music and mathematics. The Golden Mean (or Golden Section), represented by the Greek letter phi, is one of those mysterious natural numbers, like e or pi, that seem to arise out of the basic structure of our cosmos. Unlike those abstract numbers, however, phi appears clearly and regularly in the realm of things that grow and unfold in steps, and that includes living things
