ART INVESTMENT

FUNDAMENTALS

The Writing’s on the Wall From organic patterns created through computer algorithms to the clash of classical art with a wall of graffiti stencils, MELISSA SCALLAN brings you seven key investment artworks in different price ranges

UP TO £5,000 VAUGHN HORSMAN, SECTION 102 ■

2012, ENAMEL AND CARVED RESIN 60x80cm FRAMED

Algorithms, maths and datasets underpin the work of South African architect-turned-artist Vaughn Horsman. His enthusiasm is palpable

as he explains the process of taking an idea, developing it into data, then manipulating it to create an object of beauty. A CNC router converts his digital designs to sculptural forms: following lines of code from a computer, it carves into timber, metal, canvas or acrylic. To produce the soothing, organic contours of Section 102, Horsman created an algorithm

to represent the way natural forms grow – a tree might grow towards an attractor, sunshine, or away from another element, wind, and it will show the history of its life through its trunk rings.
