Venn Pirouettes, Michael Schultheis’ latest body of work, pushes his mathematical expressionism to three-dimensional form and immersive experiences. Schultheis presents his bronze sculptures of mathematical symbols in tandem with his paintings, creating an entry point to the visions in his mind. His goal is to transport the viewer into his world where equations and symbols are a timeless and universal language, expressing the stories of the human experience.
His work can be found in the collections of the Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, WA; United States Embassy, Athens, Greece & Bern, Switzerland; and the Mathematical Association of America, Washington DC among many others. Exhibitions of his works have been held at the Howard Hughes Institute in Chevy Chase, MD and at the National Academies of Sciences in Washington, D.C.
Michael Schultheis will be opening a solo exhibition at the Jordon Schnitzer Museum of Art at Washington State University on January 15th of 2019.
