Idiosyncratic paintings which combine visual art with my interests in science, mathematics, music, theatre and the natural world. These works are often sequential and developmental (theme and development or theme and variations). I began working in this style in 1976 and have been exploring it ever since.
Gerald Shepherd A.K.A. 3.14159265359 - Paul Immanuel Drawings, often extremely intricate, exploring scientific and philosophical ideas and sometimes using mathematics as a developmental tool. Most were done between 1976 and 1986 - many of which have been subsequently lost or damaged. I coined the term Ionist Art in 1976. I have returned to the concept recently and I plan to rephotograph the remaining undamaged works in due course.
