The Self closeup

I have recently discovered the power of Dynamic Symmetry, its origin, its stipulations and history.

One quote from the person who put the principles together, Jay Hambridge, is worth mentioning: “As moral law without intellectual direction fails, ends in intolerance, so instinctive art without mental control is bound to fail, to end in incoherence. In Art the control of reason means the rule of design.” (Hambridge, Jay. The Elements of Dynamic Symmetry. Dover Publications, Inc., New York. 1967).
I urge all of you to incorporate dynamic symmetry into your static compositions.
