"The Fluid and Mathematical Flow of the Soft and the Hard"
(Fractal reconstruction of Bouguereau's Dawn)
Oil on Canvas 26" x 48" 2/26/2017
After too long of a hiatus, I am happy to present my new work today.
Here I have combined the feminine and romantic anti gravitational muse of Bouguereau, with an algorithmic mechanical three dimensional fractal. While these elements are diametrically opposed, they have been placed together to demonstrate that fluidity and movement can and does get shared between them. In the provided link I have provided ink and water photos to prove this hypothesis. Also in the link you can get a preview of the animated GIF representing the super holographic lenticular version of the painting which is in the works.
Bouguereau was the precursor to Nuclear Mystical painting and even in the 1800’s had an intuition of the space between atoms that would allow a person to become anti gravitational. Combined with the fractal elements of the drapery and the likewise fractal elements of nature it would indicate that Bouguereau was applying math which had not been discovered yet.
It is also interesting to note that Dali was a big fan of Bouguereau. In fact he owned two Bouguereau originals.
