A new category in digital art emerges. Jack Cleveland introduces us to his computer graphics-generated art in Fractals. These are art forms that are geometric representations of specialized mathematical formulas, of which a great popular example is a Fibonacci Sequence. Similarly, Cleveland’s collection of fractal art reflects and illuminates structures and patterns found in nature, including the pattern movement of the stock market. His artworks such as “Bluefire,” “Birds of a Feather,” and “Keys” are among the examples of manipulated abstract mathematical equations. They are repeated recursively to create distinct abstract patterns under Cleveland’s artistic license. They are reflections of his keen interest in mathematics and earth science. The beauty of his work lies at the intersection of generative art and computer art in set parameters.
Before the advent of computers, scientists had been studying fractals for hundreds of years. As Benoit Mandelbrot’s discoveries popularized fractal geometry, explorers and artists like Cleveland created shapes that are otherworldly yet visually arresting. His collection of art in Fractals is the product of diverse calculation formulas and coloring algorithms where he takes control. Cleveland’s work can be classified as a new form of abstract art since they represent objective realities through layers of elements that achieve striking effects. You can say that fractal art is unique, but it begs the bigger question of what makes it unique compared to other art forms. As a fractal artist, Cleveland demonstrates how it can be unique, for it is the only medium that explores fractal structures through digital and classical aesthetics. Browse through this collection and experience its mesmerizing effect.
