Description Path beside the river Avon at Stratford-upon-Avon, England. Picture titled: 'Stratford-upon-Avon. Winter 2000'.The image has been manipulated to enhance colour and remove black, so that the black handmade paper background and its texture show through.
Effervescence Gallery, UK Member Since March 2009 Artist Statement I work mostly with 3D programs, fractal generators and image editors.
The fractal images are created through the manipulation and repetition of formulae, processed and rendered by computer. Though spawned by machine, the attraction of fractals comes via nature, in as much as they use nature's mathematics, her formulae; and in so doing, they echo her patterns and rhythms. Thus, they also echo our own patterns and rhythms.
I am influenced by Carl Jung's theories of the collective unconscious and archetypal images, in which he holds that certain representative imagery resides in all of us, conditioned by our culture over the ages. I believe that our interpretation of images is coloured by these archetypes, augmented by impressions from our personal experiences.
