Fractals

Fractal, noun frac·tal \frak-tl\  Any of various extremely irregular curves or shapes for which any suitably chosen part is similar in shape to a given larger or smaller part when magnified or reduced to the same size.

Fractal forms are distinct components in this body of my work. Hearing about the process would bore most people, just like listening to  someone describe in detail how to manufacture the pigments used in the paintings that they are observing. As with many digital art forms, this work requires employing a host of software applications to form the “pigment” with which these are fashioned.

At most I will offer the idea that fractal forms are the connective tissue of the natural world. They can be seen in a tree, a leaf, a snowflake or in countless other examples. As an artist, I create, combine, and manipulate individual fractal forms to reveal both literal and abstract ideas that are infinitely connected to both the wild world, and the language trapped, binary world of entrenched positions and static thoughts.

Sometimes my work shoves around an idea, allowing more interesting conversations to happen.
