Art: The Interface of Math & Beauty

Kevin Gross's avatar Kevin Gross

Fractals are complex, repetitive, mathematically based shapes and patterns that resemble those found in nature. My fractal artwork is the interface between two worlds. The one world is calculated, logical, objective. Fractals are mathematically based and created using computers. The other world is emotional, soul-stirring, subjective. What fascinated me about my first fractals was their beautiful, organic patterns and luxurious colors. They exhilarated me emotionally and spiritually and still do! The structure and pattern are intrinsically part of the equations I use to create my art. I find the process of discovering them in an almost infinite numerical landscape challenging but a labor of love. I then use the transformative power of color to both make these structures and patterns visible to the human eye and to communicate the emotional experience of their creation.
