My entry for this year is a floral/still life inspired abstract painting. The basis for the composition is a fractal image. Fractal art is a form of algorithmic art created by calculating fractal objects which are then represented as still images, or animations. The process begins with generating the right composition. From there, the image is adjusted and painted digitally. The next step to print and stretch the canvas before applying a thick impasto layer of acrylic paint. The end result is an modern abstract version of a traditional still life with flowers.
