VSU professor featured in Meredith Art Gallery exhibition

Published date: October 9, 2014

Labyrinth of ExistenceThe VSU Department of Art & Design presents Mathematics and Art: Paintings by Bourama Toni, a collection of 36 paintings, in the Meredith Art Gallery from Oct. 13 through Nov. 13. A reception and opportunity to meet the artist will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 14, at 5 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.

Toni’s paintings of landscapes, still lives, and portraits are his method of communicating beauty, emotions, feelings and  ideas through a mathematical mind and intuition, without the requirement of a rigorous logical and rational method of proof.

Dr. Bourama Toni is a Professor of Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics and Economics at Virginia State University. His work is inspired from various sources that include impressionism, post- impressionism and pointillism which appeal easily to his ‘geometric mind’. Each of his paintings regenerates his emotions and feelings which are also expressed in poems and prose, unedited, untranslated, in the languages in which they are felt, e.g., in English, French, Spanish. 

The Meredith Art Gallery is located on the second floor of Harris Hall on the campus of Virginia State University. Please call (804) 524-5944 for directions and hours.
