I explored how math relates to the linear perspective used in art by utilizing mathematical perspective as outlined in Viewpoints: Mathematical Perspective and Fractal Geometry in Art by Marc Frantz and Annalisa Crannell. I employed mathematical perspective to create two paintings with different intended viewing distances and analyzed possible distortions.
