Janet Hansen artist

Random Triangular I

Acrylic on canvas 
24" h x 20" w


The triangular networks in many of Janet's paintings, including this one, are derived from her graduate research in computational techniques for mesh generation.  These outlines satisfy the mathematical definition of a Delaunay triangulation. 

The triangles are filled in with the six basic hues of the color wheel: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple, and no two adjacent triangles are painted the same color.
