Rick Langer: The Chambered Nautilis: A Journey Into Sacred Geometry


  • Tamarack Gallery 849 E Washington Ave Madison, WI, 53703 United States (map)

Starprintz's Spring Exhibit at Tamarack Gallery is The Chambered Nautilus: A Journey Into Sacred Geometry, an exquisite body of work by Rick Langer.  This collection evolved over the past few years as Rick traveled the world with camera and shells in hand, carting them up mountains, down to seasides, creating his imagery with the likes of bristlecone pines – some of the oldest trees on earth; volcanic lava fields in Hawaii; mosques in southern Spain and petroglyphs in the American southwest, to name a few. The chambered nautilus is a living fossil that has survived in earth’s oceans for the last 500 million years.  Its shell expands outward in a logarithmic spiral.  As the animal grows, it builds new and larger chambers, and then seals off the old smaller ones.
