Mathematical Images by Michael Sussna, Ph.D.
June 25-July 30, 2014
Michael explores undiscovered worlds of exotic scenery filled with exquisite shapes in colorful profusion. This journey into the wilds of magical fractal imagery is made possible by and is a reflection of the beauty of mathematics. These intricate designs serve as snapshots capturing panoramas from the limitless uncharted realms of inner space and often feature spirals speaking spiritually to us of infinity. Michael describes his artwork as “geometric yet organic”.

Encinitas 101 MainStreet was originally formed in 1982 as the Downtown Encinitas Merchants’ Association. In 1988 it became a Main Street Program and began developing the leadership and support needed to care for and manage the downtown area, following the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Main Street Revitalization Program. Used in over 1,200 cities and 40 states, the program encourages imaginative use of business and government resources to support local downtown and neighborhood commercial district revitalization efforts.
