What is Fractal Art? Perhaps you would call it "modern" art and dismiss it. However, I find that it grabs your attention and draws you into the picture and captivates your passion. Fractal art consists of an indefinite number of spirals and circles using mathematical equations to give you the proper distance from one spiral to the next. That is the simple layperson view on this art.
A more technical definition of Fractal Art and I quote Mr. Silverstar: “Simply put, fractals are shapes which show similar features at different sizes. Much as a very close inspection of a rock can show similar features to an aerial view of a mountain, fractal shapes are characterized by this property of self-similarity.Much of what goes into fractals is based on mathematics. Sometimes the math is complicated; sometimes it is not. But, you do not need to know or understand the mathematics behind the art to appreciate it. The basic images are created using fractal generating software.
There are some who will feel that if this is all just based on mathematics, that it cannot be art. Fractal art does not pop out of nowhere, mathematics notwithstanding. To produce an aesthetically pleasing fractal image requires enormous input on the part of the artist. It also requires patience, and an eye for form and color—skills that are required for virtually any artistic discipline. (Damien Jones)
Can't anyone produce fractal art? The simple answer is yes. However, anyone can buy a camera and take snapshots, but very few can produce photographs that can be appreciated as art.
The images created in this gallery were made using the Ultra Fractal and Fractal Explorer software programs, with post-processing work done in Photoshop.
I hope you enjoy my work and realize that the finished products here are not simply the result of clicking a few random buttons. Thanks for taking an interest in my art, my passion.” Unquote.
As the artiste, Mr. Silverstar must choose the color combinations that really make this art truly unique and beguiles the viewer.
Elven Enchantment Art Gallery will be selling an Original and a Limited Edition Series from the Art Gallery and a special certificate of authenticity (COA) commemorating this Exhibition as the premier show that the Museum hosted will be put in each piece of work sold for the duration of the Exhibition. There will be two pieces chosen to be multi-copy sold from the Museum for the duration of the exhibition and there will be COAs also put in these and once the Exhibition is over the COAs will be removed from the multi-copies and the artwork will be available from Mr. Silverstar's gallery. However, the original and Limited Edition Series will remain at the museum until they are sold and once sold no more will be produced for purchase in Second Life.M/p>
Fractal Art is a vibrant, passionate, and beguiling and as Curator of Elven Enchantment, I am very happy to host Mr. Spiral Silverstar.
