My Fractal Art
Mary Wahr


I began my journey with fractals by drawing them by hand using pencil and pen. More recently my fractal art begins with the Surrealist technique called decalcomania. This means that paint is pressed between two surfaces. When the two surfaces are pulled apart the tension in the paint creates branching fractal patterns. These patterns can be manipulated by changing the pull pattern, the pressure on the paper and even dragging the paper while pulling. I have been developing new techniques and tools to enhance this process. If you want to know details you will need to follow by blog since my technique is constantly evolving.
