Triangles were a favorite motifs of Girard’s, which he used for numerous patterns: in Small Triangles, outlined shapes create an overall diamond lattice, One-Way has overlapping triangles of different sizes all facing the same direction. In the design called simply Triangles, tangent equilateral triangles are colored in such a way as to create three- or four-color syncopations, with each color appearing seemingly at random across the surface.
