'George Papadimas's work is a deceptively simplistic collection of geometric forms and color. At the heart of his pieces however, lie numerical sequences, which like the DNA of our own bodies, dictate their external form. Specifically he uses an adaptation of the Fibonacci sequence, a string of numbers that nature herself has harnessed for the biological aesthetic of such forms as pineapples, sunflowers and pinecones. By utilizing this sequence in his work, Papadimas subtly evokes the ordered chaos, underlying logic and equilibrium that shape our universe. These numerical sequences that underpin his work have evolved from earlier preoccupations concerning surface, color and process.
A strict adherence to systematic logic and methodological process is integral to the works of George Papadimas whether expressed through color, numerology or other forms. The exact formulas behind the artist’s work are beyond the reaches of immediate accessibility and so, like looking at the Fibonacci spirals, which make up the sunflower, we content ourselves with the resultant aesthetic.
The core strength of Papadimas’s work is its ability to make inferences about the wider environment. Specifically his work comments on the nature of dualities and their relationships but above all, the work hints at the existence of threads of commonality which shape everything from the innate to the living.
