At WeArtXl 2023, serigraphs of geometric puzzles corresponding to famous irrational numbers such as Pi, the golden ratio, and the square roots of two or three are presented. The numbers are replaced by ten colors or ten shades of gray. The rule then fades away to retain only the seemingly random and enigmatic character.


Inspired by rationality and the purity of forms, Philippe Leblanc draws inspiration from mathematics, including famous series like the Fibonacci sequence and conical shapes, as well as emblematic numbers. His work explores and expresses the paradoxes between the precision of the concept and the constraints of the material, the underlying rule and the apparent randomness, the mathematical austerity, and the playful aspect of the experience. This aligns with his belief that art should both stimulate and soothe the mind.
