When I did my first digital painting in 2004 and someone called it ‘Sacred Geometry’. I never heard that phrase before and had to Google it to learn that it is the basic belief that geometry, mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportion are found in music, light, nature, and the cosmos. Ancients believed there was an innate spatial order that created the architecture of the universe. It was Pythagoras who declared numbers to have sacred properties beyond that of counting. He discovered that when a blacksmith struck his anvil, different sounds were made, depending on the weight of the hammer. For the Pythagorians different musical modes have different effects on the person who hears them. At the healing centers of Asclepieion at Pergamum and Epidauros in Greece, patients underwent therapy accompanied by music. And this was over 2200 years ago! The Roman statesman, Boethius explained that the soul and the body are subject to the same laws of proportion that govern music and the cosmos itself. Plato described geometry as the purest language to describe our physical realm, and the language our souls spoke in the ideal realms. I see an elegant interrelation of these principles, and one that can’t be denied. It’s logical and tangible.
