Francois Morellet

To celebrate his 90th birthday, The Mayor Gallery is showing "Les Regles du Jeu" by Francois Morellet.  The work pictured was made by marking out four sets of lines each rotated 22.5 degrees from the next.  The result is a dynamical feeling of rain falling on water.  These highly constrained images are playful and touching and each encourages the viewer to discover the simple relations giving rise to the complexity, asking them maybe, to think like a scientist.
