Metamorphose was intended as a tribute to one of the most interesting artists of all time and to three of his masterpieces that actually evolved over time…
 
Metamorphose I – 1937
Metamorphose II – 1939-1940
Metamorphose III – 1967-1968
 
M.C. Escher is quoted as saying, “By keenly confronting the enigmas that surround us, and by considering and analyzing the observations that I have made, I ended up in the domain of mathematics, Although I am absolutely without training in the exact sciences, I often seem to have more in common with mathematicians than with my fellow artists.”

Personally, my formal training is with mathematics and engineering, so Escher obviously holds a special place with me.

    So does that make me CL8N. I think so. Thanks for the kindness. I tried to make the characters rigid and precise, similar to Escher. Just imagine if Escher knew what an ambigram was. I think we would all just curl up in the fetal position and suck our thumbs. :)

    Absolutely! On all accounts!
