Join ADFAS Camden (Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Societies), in this months’ lecture The Real Da Vinci Code; given by lecturer Brian Healey (The Arts Society).
This lecture reveals just what it is about that quirk of mathematics they call ‘Golden Ratio’ that has so intrigued artists, scientists and even novelists such as Dan Brown down the ages. The latter’s best-selling novel brought it to public attention, and rightly so. This lecture goes further into the ratio’s underpinning of outstanding design in nature, art and architecture, encouraging some to suggest this could be the blueprint of the universe itself.
A senior modern languages teacher in an independent grammar school for many years, Brian Healey has enjoyed a successful parallel career since the 1980s as a professional artist and interior designer. Since 2006 he has been either resident artist, guest lecturer on art history or a destination speaker on ocean and river cruises visiting more than forty countries. Most recently this work has successfully extended to art guiding through important towns and museums in France, Belgium, Holland and Spain.
