Meet the New Masters

Large Bank with TreeJust as some people admire the traditional artform of painting because of the skill and effort that goes into making it, I’ve come to realize that I have the same sort of admiration for machine-made art. Furthermore, just as many people will quickly associate artistic merit with almost any subject done in […]

These days, you could find yourself travelling half-way around the world in a few hours. And in the world of art: a couple clicks and you could find yourself in the Louvre. That’s the reality of our tiny, modern world: technology takes our little feet and straps jet engines on them. Unfortunately, there are no […]

Artists and Craftsmen

Here’s another theory in the rough; something that I think is relevant to Fractal Art, and probably all artforms: There are “Artists” and there are “Craftsmen”. An artist is… I don’t know what an artist is, exactly. They make “Art”. What is art? It’s more of a concept, somewhat subjective in nature, but not just […]

Fractal Art isn’t Rocket Science

The Fractal Art world is an odd place. The strange combination of technical people (mathematicians, engineers, programmers) and artsy, creative people is curious and could almost be the setting for a mystery novel. My wife once told someone at work about my fractal hobby and said they were really impressed after visiting my website that […]

The scenery of Walden is on a humble scale, and, though very beautiful, does not approach to grandeur, nor can it much concern one who has not long frequented it or lived by its shore; yet this pond is so remarkable for its depth and purity as to merit a particular description. It is a […]

A New Dark Age

If most of the great works of art are depictions of natural things like landscapes and human forms, then shouldn’t we expect digital imagery which creates an new kind of natural thing, like fractal formulas, to have the same depth and richness and artistic potential? While there may have been some minor developments in the […]

Colorful Desert

Before there was only sand and the Shat al Arab. But now, plumes of color from the petro-chemical plants. From oil comes the pigments and inks of modern industry, turning the sombre land into oceans of color. The nets of the fisherman have given way to great cables of oil, shipping lanes and refinery ports. […]
