I live in the beautiful Blue Mountains in Australia surrounded by natural birdlife. I can't help but want to capture these beautiful birds into artwork and the drawing of them has me discover extra details and fascinations about them. The Lyre bird is such an extraordinary specie that you can see spotted around the area. Or if you are lucky to hear it mimicking other bird calls you are in for a treat.
My background is in mathematics where I researched a particular mathematical geometry called 'fractal geometry'. Fractal geometry is different to your everyday geometry in the sense that fractals have a self similar property to them. They are self similar at every level of magnification meaning if you focus into any small part of the fractal, it will look still look like the overall shape. Fractal geometry exists in nature. An example is a fern, where each frond of the fern is the same shape as the overall fern. However we can also generate and design abstract fractals. One way fractals can be constructed is by starting with basic shape, and then repeating a set of specific mathematical equations to it that might shrink, rotate, stretch, etc. the shape. These equations are repeated over and over again to create the fractal. This piece is from my latest exhibition, where fractals in various stages of their construction, overlay flora and fauna from the natural world.
The fractal featured in this piece is a feather generating fractal.
This piece if oil mixed charcoal on paper and framed in a matted white timber frame. Back has D rings and hanging wire attached
Image: 36cm x 29cm
Frame: 54cm x 44cm
Oil Mixed Charcoal. The charcoal has an oil component that allows for smooth laying of the charcoal, a rich matt black look without the smudging.
