In 1966 Verostko painted an eight-foot by four-foot wooden panel as a “Canticle to the Sun”. That work, celebrating the sun, incorporated text from the sun canticle by Francis of Assisi (1182-1226). Reminiscent of the same canticle, these pen plotted works celebrate the sun using radial algorithms. The artist employed radial algorithms in works dating back to 1987. The illuminated brush strokes have no rational meaning. These algorithmic brush plots display visual pathways arbitrarily chosen from a vast array of possible sequences.
