Experimenting with numbers. Detail photo of some of the totems I've been making.
I've been experimenting with numbers in my art for the past month and judging from the artworks I've found for this post there are many artists who love using numbers in their work. These are just the tip of the iceberg.

"I guess the best way I can describe these pieces is to say that they are kinda like puzzles that I am trying to solve. How they turn out and what they end up being is led by an idea or feeling. Sometimes it's an idea that I've drawn in my sketchbook or something that I've overheard, like a piece of conversation. Once I have the idea, I mix it with whatever elements I have lying around my studio that, when combined, solve that particular puzzle and thought. I usually have no idea how a piece is going to turn out or what it's going to look like until I really get into it -- and even then, it can change. I love that. I love knowing and the surprise that happens in the end." - Maura Cluthe
