Fractal Energy and the Beauty of Art

Fractal Art
Polka Dot Explosion Fractal Art by AsaLegault

Several years ago, a wonderful artist by the name of Mary Ann Beckwith introduced me to fractal art. She used fractals as inspiration for some of her paintings.

I was intrigued and found great inspiration in them for my own art work. I also introduced fractal art in the classroom for my elementary art students. Using fractals I found on the Internet, I placed prints around the art room for the children to use as reference materials. Studying these beautiful fractals, they created wonderful imaginative pieces of art.

Now, I've made another fractal discovery. This is of fractal mandalas. Here is a link to an absolutely awesome Fractal Mandala.

Thank you, Mary Ann.

Are you familiar with fractals? I would love to know your experiences.

You know I have dabbled with the two fractal effects *(Julia and Mandelbrot) in my program. I am not sure I get the purpose but then I am generally looking for something else in my photo "tweaking". I am going to go visit that site you mention and check it out!

Alex, you should take a look. The patterning is beautiful.

Thanks for visiting, Chuck. The mandalas are hypnotic!
