Art: Fractalverses

March 16, 2017 ART/PHOTOGRAPHY

I am aware of the intrinsic quality of art. Fractal art in particular is a personal narrative, the way I see it, to represent identities that flow. I am a harbinger of the twenty first century, with primitive and avant-garde influences. Without being concerned about placing my work under a rubric, I aim to symbolise a cosmic order of fluidity.

Regardless of whether I utilise an onion skin, mulberry paper or a digital canvas for my craft, there are a plethora of encompasses I deal with. I am particularly interested in the multitudes of color, textures, hues, the non-linear way of looking at all we experience. Unless the abstraction makes one aware and heightens ones sense of experience, the piece is incomplete. Through these fractals I attempt to create a communication pattern that transcends the physical into aspects of the metaphysical.

The works of art represent a symbolic relationship with dream narratives and colored accents. I employ a sense of narrative to my pieces to present the printmaking of thoughts and reimaginations. I operate with the thought that graphic art is not just concerned with illustration, but also a juxtaposition of ideas. It is that embodiment that traverses in the forms and shapes of my work.
