Biography of the artist: Joseph CHACRON (Alexandria 1936 - Amiens 2010) Born in Alexandria in 1936, Joseph Chacron, a career mathematics teacher, devotes his life to the relationship between art and mathematics. After a degree in mathematics at the University of Marseille, he went to Paris then became a doctor in philosophy of mathematics by defending a thesis on relational structures at the Picardie Jules Verne University of Amiens in 1970, where he taught algebra. all his life. At the same time, he develops research on mathematics in art and himself practices screen printing. He also tackles several fields and techniques: painting, drawing, sculpture, engraving, poetry… He published various works combining Science and Art: in 1971, The Three Fundamental Isomorphism The First Theorems which he dedicated to Pablo Picasso for his 90th anniversary. anniversary, Mathematical Aesthetics, Theory of Painting which appeared in 1980 by Éditions Scientifique de l'Art, then Odes to the cinema: drawings and poems in 1997 by Editions La Bartavelle. This scientific personality never ceases to attach mathematical elements to artistic expression, to question their relationships, to establish their links. Historically, the bridges between these two disciplines are numerous: from the Renaissance onwards, the Sciences were exploited in the service of Art with the use of the golden ratio and the geometric perspective invented by Filippo Brunelleschi and theorized by Leon Battista Alberti to which testify the works of contemporary artists of this discovery such as the Italian primitive Paolo Uccello or Piero Della Francesca. This Arts and Sciences relationship is present throughout history, both in the use of mathematical objects as subjects of Art, for example the engraving Melancolia I by Albrecht Dürer in which the sphere and the polyhedron appear; than the exploitation of scientific properties for artistic expression. The art of the twentieth century provides a particularly eloquent testimony to this report in that it delivers a representation of the world deindexed from mimesis (representation of reality) in favor of a subjective vision of being in the world which is reflected plastically by a certain geometrization of shapes. If Joseph Chacron highlights the poetics of science through theoretical treatises, this interest also leads him to practice with the realization of drawings, paintings, collages and serigraphs. Through his works, Joseph Chacron delivers a fragmented and synthetic vision of the world that reveals the two subjects that have animated him all his life: Mathematics and Art.
