Fractals

Fractals exist everywhere, in nature, they are the fabric of creation, mathematical structures that self replicate, into infinity. When I first started making fractal images on the computer I was swept away, glued to my chair in jaw dropping amazement, a total aesthetic celebration. Over time I have created and saved thousands of images. Most people would not keep them all, but I have use for them, animating them i my videos, and what I do with them gives me another way of looking at them. Much of what I save of the image I create would be passed up by most people who make fractals, as it is not the usual spiral fractal.  I have discovered within the realm of fractals is a whole world of archetypal structures, a kind of cosmic language. Several of my videos are just fractals for the visuals. Other videos have mostly fractals with some "real" paintings collaged in. When the fractals are animated into motion and space some unexpected illusions appear, stars twinkle, waves flow looking like real water. Some of the images are overlays and combinations of more than one fractal image. When I first started making fractal images they got into my head. When I would lie down to go to sleep I would see them, not sharp clear, but subtle, definitely there, morphing and changing, a flow of energy. I see them in my inner vision when I close my eyes. Perhaps they were always there, but I just did not notice before.

Combined Images

There is no limit to what one can do with images on the computer. My images often are made from several images, merging fractals, nature spirits, and my paintings. I You will find my Chakra Mandala series, Tara, Medicine Buddha, Padmasambhava, and other faces and landscapes taken from my purely imaginary inner world paintings.

All of this group of images is from the video called One Star. These for the most part are fractals, but I have added a bit of other imagery into some of them.  Click on the image to see it large size.

Below is a sequence of similar images, it is an evolution, created for the video work. I usually end up with more images than I can use. I can make very good quality prints of any of the images here, let me know if you are interested.

Tara Blessings

Here is a group of images I created for my Tara Blessings video. They are combinations of parts of my Tara paintings and some fractals images, and a couple nature images, a tree, and some bubbles. I can make you a nice print of any of these images, email me if you are interested.
