Brown Coloured Earth With Glass Plates by Andrea1981G is an example of fractal style art. Fractal Art isn't something that can produced by hand. These complex images Fractal Artists create can be born out of fairly simple mathematical formulas, and then by selectively modifying these formulas, changing colours, reiterating shapes. These unique compositions are created.

In my opinion Fractal art is not a genre that particularly appeals to me personally, due to it's very busy and complex nature. It's mathematical roots reflects very highly within itself in the work produced and even through the bright vivid hues, the rigid and clinical undertones still remain. That being said Fractal Art make extremely interesting pieces of work. There are so many varieties of Fractal styles, that even if the artwork isn't for you personally, you do find yourself captivated to stare into these geometrical landscapes and draw your own conclusions about what you are looking at. I do admire those who choose to develop their fractal styles because it's by no means an technique to tackle. I for one, wouldn't even know where to begin!
Brown Coloured Earth is a very interesting piece of work. I believe is follows the same formula of most examples of Fractal styles that I've come across. The work created by this artist harbours the same complexity of shapes and beziers, the colours are intense and eye catching. Looking into this deviation, my eye is drawn to the shadows of the shapes, then it just bounces off the areas of colour to the next shape. I believe that is artist is highly influenced by space, Science Fiction, and astronomy. I feel that the work created here reflects this.
The composition has a very kaleidoscopic feel to it, there are a lot of areas of the work that appear mirrored, every now and then you come across a shape or a curve that has been placed in which breaks the repetitiveness of the work. The eye then feels inclined to follow the path of this new shape up to other areas of the picture that you otherwise wouldn't be drawn to. This in my opinion a feeling of movement in the artwork, a good example of this is the huge orange curve sweeping in at the bottom of the the work. It adds a feeling, the more I trace over it with my eyes, that these shadowy spheres are orbiting in a clockwise direction much like planets do in a solar system.
Brown coloured Earth, isn't the most vivid coloured example of fractal art. Some fractal pieces are so intense with hues and brightness that your mind is almost on a visual acid trip. I feel that colour intensity is not always what makes a fractal piece of work interesting. There are many versions of fractal works that use highly contrasted black and white shapes, similar to that of M.C.Escher's style and produce some very unusual results in sacrifice to colour.
In Andrea1981G's approach to colour there is a wonderful balance of low and high saturated colour. It starts at the centre of the piece as a bright burst of oranges and yellows, then it almost fades out into a more dull tone which gives the work a feeling of solar glare, or explosion fading off into darkness. Every now and then you see a blast of green which adds contrast to the warm colours. This draws the eye deeper into the picture in a very pleasant way, like looking out of a window on a space station, or through an advanced space helmet/visor.
Although fractal art isn't my cup of tea, I have learned quite a lot from this artist's piece of work and looked into a style that would have otherwise gone over my head. Fractal art isn't always a style you can look at and know "It's a cat" or "That's a landscape of a desert."
When I first saw the work "Brown Coloured Earth With Glass Plates" the subject wasn't obvious at all. Instead the artist forced my imagination to see into the work beyond what was obvious. I think this is what I find very appealing about this artist's work.
What do you think?
