Fractals of the Earth

Casey L Carter's avatar Casey L Carter

I created this piece in order to emphasize the intricacies and interconnection of all parts of nature that we humans take for granted. The form of the image depicted is that of a mandala. Mandalas appear in the artwork of many cultures, for example, In Hindu and Buddhist symbology, the mandala represents the universe. The position of the mandala on the canvas is based on the fibonacci sequence. The fibonacci sequence, while not only creates a composition that is pleasing to the eye, also happens to be relevant in many forms of nature. I did not include depictions on people in this piece as I feel that they would take away from the calm and the focus of the painting.
