     "In that I have selected a variety of mathematical / geometric concepts as the basis for the work, it is my intent to form a complex integration by graphing an x,y axis, asymptote symmetry, spiral, parabola, ellipse, diagonal straight line reflection with collinear intersections and a perpendicular intersect on diagonal plotting.  Conchiform represents mathematical concepts by use of line, a priori the primary mathematics to formalize a geometric construction. The geometric construction procedures are basically algorithmic. The collinear intersects demonstrate both mathematical and visual truths in the geometric pictorial field."  Clifford Singer © ™  2016

 "In the progress of this paper I have interspersed some reflections that we can collect into a general point of view on my art works. While the geometric style in the broadest sense can be classified in the art world as 'geometric abstraction', what actually takes place on the picture plane between form, space and color goes far beyond the limitations of such arbitrary labels. The work evokes ceaseless mobility, speed, time, space, growth, compression, tension, attraction, and the infinite nature of pure mathematical  elements.
    
In the painting I suggest the dynamics of a space that continually expands the structure  and geometrical fragmentation in space-time. Line segments in the universe are interconnected, even when they appear to be separate from one another. In space-time curvature the geometrical signing through collinearity illustrates a deformation of space."

Clifford Singer, Geometrical Clouds Series, © 1974-2012
"Geometrical Clouds is a continual paradox of geometry or anomaly – derivative from regular arrangement, general rule or usual method of thinking that I had delved into during the 1970s in working with
hyper spatial geometry in n-dimensions."

    "Working in this fashion had created difficulties for the viewer in that it is contradictory and inconsistent with common experience that is -- actually based in fact.    This Geometrical Cloud painting which I had produced in 1978 raised much controversy, considering a broad difference with known reference of works by traditionally known contemporaries such as Josef Albers, Al Held, Kenneth Snelson, as well as Kenneth Martin with his systematic grid work at that time. "

 "White Cloud as a wall construction was derived and developed from an aquatint etching that I had done in Vincent Longo’s print studio in 1978 and later produced from hand cut plastic with white acrylic as you can see here.  The Blue Cloud wall construction was developed from a series of drawings in 1978 and hand cut plastic with blue acrylic that are consistent with my method in producing this Geometric Cloud painting in 1978.  It is fascinating to see a Geometrical Cloud painting together with the Geometric Cloud sculptures."

Ivan C. Karp of the O.K. Harris Gallery, New York stated in 1978 “Clifford Singer is the most fierce geometric painter”  Clifford Singer © 2012

Nicholas Krushenick told me in 1974, "Cliff, you are only as good as your last painting."

Nicholas Krushenick further remarked, "Albers painted that same f....... square for thirty years."
"I was the one who told Al Held to go to art school."  Years later I discovered that Nick and his brother were comedians in the Catskills for many years.
