George Widener Art Exhibit
George Widener is a self-taught artist and calendar savant who employs his extraordinary mathematical and calculating capabilities along with memorized census population statistics to create artworks based around significant dates and historical events. His works often employ complex date juxtapositions and bold numerical patterns that support an overarching theme like the sinking of the Titanic, one of his more prominent motifs.
Now a close friend of the artist, Victor Keen has been fascinated by Widener’s use of hundreds of numbers, letters, dates, arrows and symbols that surround and support the fundamental themes of each artwork. Numbers, dates, days, months, shapes and color come together in perfectly structured, elaborate patterns often composed on found paper or pieced together paper napkins.
