Digital art is art by mathematics using the computer as the medium. Much of M.C. Escher’s work is mathematical art, only he didn’t have the benefit of a computer. Most of the images in this gallery have been created from fractals generated using a number of programs:
UltraFractal 5, 6
Corel PaintShopPro X4, X5 and X6
DxO FilmPack 3 and 4
My objective has always been to make an image which I like to look at and continue to get pleasure from. Abstract and colorful. Not to look like a fractal. Pleasing to the eye. Fractals and photos includes a bit of whimsy in the images. Maybe even tell a story.
I don’t read textbooks. I am not a member of a photography club or an art studio. I do what comes naturally and gut feeling tells me if I have done well. I like to look at the work of other artists, especially Old Masters, and photographers and learn from them – visually.
I judge my creations, whether photograph or digital or hybrid under the following criteria:
It’s no big deal. If it works it will feel good and can easily be classified accordingly. There are always plenty of failures! Don’t tell me to look at a textbook just because you see it differently – perhaps I have hung the picture upside down.
