"Sacral Nirvana" by :iconlindelokse:

I will begin by saying that while I am not a fractal artist, fractals have intrigued me for some time due to their incredible ability to communicate abstract emotional concepts through mathematical and technological precision. This work is no exception, the piece is expertly done and there is a broad range of contrasting ideas within it, causing the observer to sit and ponder what is happening within the frame.

Initially, the color and overall temperature of the piece is what drew me in as an observer. Exploration of the primaries (:bulletred:Red, :bulletblue:Blue, and :bulletyellow:Yellow) can be seen, but occurs more as an afterthought than the main intention. This disguising of the color scheme results from the contrast between the bright centralized red and yellow tones versus the muted, almost grey blues that bookend diagonal edges of the frame. Depth of Field (DOF) and meticulous design maximize the potential of this primary color scheme. Red S-curves outlined by yellow litter the frame. These curves not only draw your attention around the space as a whole, but directly towards the center where the main action of the piece is taking place. These "wires" / vein-like structures are detailed, complete with small blood cells that travel the complex system of interlocking paths. The onslaught of overlapping curves heighten the senses with an almost visceral response: friction, push and pull, an overwhelming sense of tension / pressure meets its conclusion at the core. Here a burst of intense yellow and white light is being produced, the climax of the visual affair. Force is communicated through the sparks being projected up and away from the blast, leaving the observer with a satisfying sense of release.

Needless to say, lighting in this work is brilliant! And the attention to detail is virtually endless. Shadows play almost as important, if not more important, role in creating depth for this work than the light does. The darkness surrounding the frame suggests that wherever this location is, it is not encased in light. But the light is bursting forth, out into the darkness revealing some deep emotional (possibly spiritual) connections. Either way, the piece holds much meaning.

My only critique for this piece is minor in light (no pun intended) of the amazing execution, but you are so close to reaching a new place with this art form that I have not seen before. When it comes to originality, it is very difficult to get out of the trends marked by a particular medium. In general (I know making generalizations is not appropriate), I find that fractals rely heavily on repetition, patterns, and color for their impact, and are used for expressing ideas closely linked to technology itself. This piece went in a very different direction heading towards something much more organic, and I wish that it had removed itself even more from the mechanical look of the physical space. I kept thinking computer and car engine, environments where these concepts are common to exist. But (as you saw in the descriptions above) there were also a lot of biological significance in this work. And I would like to see if this technological medium could accurately represent biological systems instead of mechanical systems. Just food for thought...

Congrats on a truly stellar piece! It has been a pleasure diving into this work deeper. Good luck on future endeavors!
