Andrew Cole Explains His Art

The images I share with you here are as much for you, the viewer, as for my own indulgence. Sequential perfect information zero-sum combinatorial games such as chess or the popular Asian game Go create forces and objects using energy and matter in a process that mimics real world physics.

Advancing beyond the level of the average chess player takes years of study and practice; my interest in chess is simply the enjoyment of cerebral competition. In the process of playing a game, why not also enjoy the game as an artistic challenge, to articulate the forces and structures created in each individual match in a way that draws in the viewer and creates an esthetically pleasing image?

I look at these two dimensional human constructions as a toolbox to create structures and particle interactions that may or may not duplicate reality, but their integrity within the rules is maintained just as in real life. I have had the opportunity to attack uncharted territory using the tools provided by one discipline to create my own version of another. I hope eventually someone else will use one of these toolboxes to create their own vision so that I can enjoy and learn from their efforts.

Thank you for viewing my work. I welcome any comments or criticisms; you can reach me at:

Janet Parke is long associated with Ballet Memphis (in Tennessee) as choreographer, administrator, dance school teacher and principal. She has also long been an established fractal artist who who has won many prizes for her work and whose prints have been exhibited and collected widely. She was one of the first to master the complex fractal program, UltraFractal, and provided the online fractal community with a series of tutorials on use of the program. Her fractals have stylistic integrity and are carefully composed of dramatic fractal forms enhanced by a strong, subtle palette of warm, rich colors. The fractals exhibited here were all drawn in UltraFractal.
