In one of the last diary paintings (#48), when I got to the end of the roll of paper, I began to paint back over what I had done, so the end was at the beginning. This got me thinking about the möbius strip, a continuous one-sided figure that exists in three dimensions. As I played with the möbius, I found that a certain relationship between length and width, when compressed to flatness, produced a hexagon composed of equilateral triangles and thus the Möb-hex. — RH
