I think mathematicians do mathematics for reasons that are very similar to those of musicians playing music or any artist doing their art. It’s all about trying to contribute to a certain understanding of ourselves and of the world around us.

Classic Paintings on Trashed Cans by Kim Alsbrooks

On technique: The trash is found flat, on the street. One cannot flatten the trash. It just doesn’t work. It must be found so that there are no wrinkles in the middle and the graphic should be well centered.

Then the portraits are found that are complimentary to the particular trash. Generally I depict miniature portraits from the watercolor on ivory era (17th-18th century more or less). The trash is gessoed in the oval shape, image drawn in graphite, painted in oils and varnished.
