The Penrose Proofs: an exhibition of Roger Penrose’s Scientific Drawings 1-6

As you might expect from a man whose family included the Surrealist artist Roland Penrose, Roger Penrose has always thought visually. That thinking is captured brilliantly in this selection of Roger’s drawings that he produced for his published works and papers.

From quasi-symmetric patterns to graphic illustrations of the paradoxical three versions of reality via twistor theory and the brain, this selection captures the stunning range of Roger’s scientific work and the visual thinking that inspires and describes it.
