I think I've been looking at too many of my mom's art books/magazines. :eye::eye:

I think looking at art magazines/books is never too much. I will even dare say that the Fractals Gallery would benefit enormously if we studied contemporary art and visited museums and art galleries much more.
I like this fractal for its abstract layout and the study of your "pictoric" surface. It is balanced and yet dynamic, the different shapes (squares, round and lineal) interplay well with each other and it goes beyond the usual decorative intention behind fractals. You worked on an idea, a concept, and this fractal belongs to Conceptual Art, a welcome trend in our craft.
In my opinion, it would be even better if the colours were toned down a bit. Your work would then distance itself even more from the "catchy" colourful works that plague our Gallery. There are powerful reasons behind the sober, minimal tendencies in Contemporary Art, reasons directly related to our society's place in history and the world.
Nevertheless, this is a fine example of a modern fractal, a work of art in consonance with contemporary society's way of thinking.

Hello,
You have been featured in my journal here as well as in my profile page!
Congratulations! :)

On an added note, I really like the small amount of textures that themselves look like floral designs and the varied opacity on them! :)

A fine piece of art that combines both old and new in a innovative way. In short a Fantastic fractal that is geometric art too! I'm speechless, your fractal imagination seems endless.

actually, one of the things i like about this piece is the contrast you achieve with the two circles and how they look "raised" or that they're floating slightly above the surface of the rest of the picture. and, i would also add, your use of color is excellent--very vibrant, but also well balanced.

Thank you very much for a truly wonderful comment. I did add a "shadow" to the circles to create the appearance of them floating. The colors are from an Apo gradient that I kicked the saturation up and tweaked a little. I've seen some images, mostly fractals, that have some truly awful colors but would otherwise have been really great so I was hoping to show that you don't have to use muted shades or pastels as long as you use the right combination of hue, value and intensity.

I really appreciate the :+fav: too. :iconcutedanceplz:
