The Art of Paul McGuire

I have added color to the basic fractal mesh algorithm, so that images can be vivid and colorful or muted and pastel, and the generated pattern still mimics the patterns and forms of nature. The colorful patterns draw the viewer back again and again - often to discover a new shape or texture in the patterns of the fractal mesh.

When people look at these images, they invariably find one or two that they find especially appealing, and I believe this is because the flow of color and shape in my images evoke the same flow of shape we see every day in the natural world. Just as we by nature are drawn to watch the embers of a fire, or the flow over a waterfall, or lightning across the sky, my images compel and draw in the viewer, to consider the complexity and beauty that emerges from simple natural processes and effects.
