A while back I found out one of my fractal pieces had sold from the Art Gallery of Lambeth. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank them for representing me and for selling this piece. I didn’t find out which one it was, until recently, and then I was not surprised, as many people at various exhibits have told me it is their favourite.
I was going to find the image on this site and change the caption to say it was sold… and then realized I have never posted it here! I’ve used the image to advertise some of my shows, but have never quite written the blog post I wanted to write about it.
While “archetypal” comes to mind (and is wrong) to describe this image, I confess I’m at a loss otherwise. And maybe that is why it took me this long to write about it. There is just something about it that speaks to people, and while I feel it too, I can’t describe it. Who needs words when it comes to visual art anyway, right? But I would love to hear your ideas.
My original title for this was “The Birth of Wind”, but then it just became “Wind”. I don’t even have an explanation for that!
All I really have to say is, while this image is also one of my favourites and will stay with me for a long time, I am glad someone else is now able to enjoy it on a daily basis. If you are the buyer, thank you and please let me know as I haven’t been told who you are.
