In the Fibonacci sequence the next number is the sum of the previous two numbers. So it begins 0 1 1 2 3 5 8 13 . It regularly occurs in nature. For example in the diameter of consecutive turns of a snail shell. This work illustrates this as a sequence of turned beech spheres of 1, 1, 2, 3, 5 and 8cm diameter. In addition to which the distance between the spheres is also in the sequence 1, 1, 2, 3 and 5 cm. These are mounted on a 2.5cm x 11cm (maximum) x 35 cm tapered English oak plinth. The piece weighs 0.75kg. It is the work of David Boyd FRSC, who is a scientist specialising in scientific and geometric artworks.

motorway interchange No.2
motorway interchange No.2 , 36X36" oil on canvas by Harry Carr the contrasting colours were used in the same way as the previous painting to exaggerate the segregation in British society. although the colours are contrasting with each other, at the same time they somewhat work together.this shows that british society is segregated but we are still able to get along together in harmony. for the texture i painted thick impasto paint underneath and i used a palette knife to do this. the pallete knife was a great tool to use for this piece because i could get ridges which show terrain, and smooth dimples and waves to show where the sea is.
Suburbia, 24x24" oil on canvas by Harry Carr this is the first painting of my new series " civilisation by night". in this piece i was exploring how the roads and motorways flow into each other and create the basis of mass travel and civilisation as we know it. the motorways are very similar to arteries in our bodies, in the way that they carry all our food and fuel. if a particular motorway becomes blocked it is the same as an artery getting blocked. the food which is the "blood" cant get through to the "organs" which is the cities. this then starves the cities of nutrients to survive and prosper. this is evident in war zones where roads get cut off, so supplies cant get through. bad weather can also restrict the flow of supplies which has been evident in the last week. this piece was created by using pointillism in a series of colours one on top of each other. i started with a cream colour then a darker yellow. on top of the yellow i painted a dark red colour along with a vibrant orange. this was done to create depth. i then added in some highlights of viridian green and titanium white, these colours also enhance the other colours like the yellow. my main priority in this piece was to highlight the importance of the roads. to do this i put a layer of a cream colour down, quite thickly. then added darker tones over that to create a contrast between the two colours, this then in tern intensified the contrast between the roads and the city lights. and to show that the roads are more important than the towns and cities. frame: black wooden floating frame colours: mars black, Naples yellow, viridian green, titanium white,
erratic madness, 24"x24" oil on canvas by Harry Carr For this piece I decided to take forward the scratching technique and incorporate it into this piece. This technique eludes to the madness and the feeling of being overwhelmed when in a huge city. This piece is very textural ,which was done to enhance the hectic mood of the piece. The composition of the cityscape Is intriguing because I purposely made some of the roads large to contrast against the smallness of the side streets. The thick bold roads also play to the idea that cities are very segregated places. people tend to stay in areas where their race , religion or nationality has settled. This means that people don't know much about each other and this turns into racism. the piece was painted one way then I moved the piece around to see which way looked more interesting and unusual. I quite liked this way of working because I didn't know how the piece was eventually going to look. frame: black wooden floating frame colours used: mars black, Naples yellow, viridian green, titanium white, primary red,
