Winston Wächter Fine Art is excited to announce our eighth solo exhibition with Seattle artist Michael Schultheis, In his latest body of work, Vitruvian Breath, Schultheis demonstrates how the symmetry and proportions applied by Roman architect Vitruvius, can be applied to human consciousness. He explores the patterns of human behavior, maps our shared breath, models how we interact with our partners and loved ones over time. The tracing and recording of our lives create elegant and faultless forms, telling individual stories, and the overlapping stories of humanity. By using the timeless and universal language of mathematics, Schultheis is able to connect us all in a way language and representational imagery often cannot.

Schultheis’ works can be found in the collections of the Tacoma Art Museum, Tacoma, WA; United States Embassy, Athens, Greece & Bern, Switzerland; and the Mathematical Association of America, Washington DC among many others. Exhibitions of his works have been held at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Howard Hughes Institute in Chevy Chase, MD, the National Museum of Mathematics in New York and at the National Academies of Sciences in Washington, D.C.
