Front Covers With Clifford Singer’s Geometrical Paintings
Art & Mathematics 2000
CLIFFORD SINGER ™, Cut Space Series, Composition # 34, front cover
"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 a reflection with collinear intersections and intersects on diagonal plotting. Cut Space Series 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

This sale took me 10 months to close. I met with Chuck Gregory, who was the in house architectural designer and also art buyer for IBM at the time. Chuck at my sales meeting stated that my work looked like it was generated by a computer - I replied, "Chuck, I am the computer". After 10 months, I received a call from Mr. Gregory stating IBM was going to buy my portfolio and that I was the first artist to sell to IBM directly without an art dealer or consultant in the middle. I delivered the portfolio and received a check for $1500.00 shortly after. This was quite substantial as I printed 60 portfolios.
