The Fibonacci Trees Dunn's exibition of new paintings exlores the Fibonacci series, a numerical sequence based on Hindu and Arabic mathematics now associated with the Italian mathematician Leonardo Fibonacci (c. 1170 - c.1250). This sequence appears throughout nature - in the branching of trees, the uncurling of ferns, the arrangement of a pine cone and the spiral in shells.
