Mary Temple – 1 Million Ellipsoids


Artist Mary Temple finally completed her 1 million ellipsoid project, comprising several hundred orginal works. Drawn with one color of ink pen on a translucent vellum sheet, each work has 1000 to 5000 ellipsoids reflecting form and color in a thoughtful, yet playful and meditative manner. The works are sequential and took several years to get to the final millionth ellipsoid. I recently purchased this piece, which was completed near the end of the project. Everyone here loves looking at it.


You can find Ms. Temple’s portfolio at Mixed Greens contemporary art gallery. Many colors, many flavors of design.
