M. C. Escher (1898 – 1972)

by

Maurits Cornelis Escher (17 June 1898 – 27 March 1972), usually referred to as M.C Escher, was a Dutch graphic artist. He is known for his often mathematically inspired woodcuts, lithographs, and mezzotints. These feature impossible constructions, explorations of infinity, architecture, and tessellations.

– M.c. Escher Quotations –

“I don’t use drugs, my dreams are frightening enough.”

“We adore chaos because we love to produce order.”

“Only those who attempt the absurd will achieve the impossible.”

“I could fill an entire second life with working on my prints.”

“What I give form to in daylight is only one per cent of what I have seen in darkness.”

“Order is repetition of units. Chaos is multiplicity without rhythm.”
