Ray Ferris
Art Curriculum Vitae


General Background
Although I have had some formal art training, my interest has always been in the application of mathematics, and as an extension, computer technology to the creation of art. In studying composition it became clear that natural growth patterns can be expressed through simple (and sometimes complex) formulas. As a scientist, matematician, computer technologist, I have attempted to express nature and sometimes pure concepts in art.

Formal Art Training
Salmagundi Club, New York City, Portraiture, Drawing
Vancouver School of Art, B.C., Contemporary Techniques

Formal Education
BA Mathematics
M.Sc. Statistics

Artistic Styles
Early works in portraits and drawing led to focus on pure colour and composition in a hard edge fashion. These works became increasingly complex and mathematical over the years. Currently most work is computer based and exists mostly in digital formats. Other media include oils, pen and ink, acrylic, silk screen, tapestry and rugs, stained glass and some wrought iron design.

Professional Memberships
