As an artist who has always used natural forms as my subject and began my career by painting Rembrandt-like; portraits of white roses, my interest in Chaos Theory and fascination with one of its components - fractals - led; to a permanent transformation of my artistic vision. To echo William Blake, I see the world in a grain of sand,; and heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of my hand, and eternity in an hour. My subject is no; longer simply a flower. By stripping away the mask of the exterior form and magnifying the image beyond what; is recognizable to the naked eye I have discovered an inexhaustible richness of the internal structure. I have; gained a deeper insight into the universal properties of all natural phenomena because, at this depth, I have; uncovered dynamical systems whose patterns repeat in other phenomena. This is where my work takes the; literal definition of a fractal - the self-similarity of an object of nature that is repeated thousands of times at; different magnifications (picture a head of broccoli) - and broadens the scope beyond a single object. It is not; my objective to convey every orifice and streak of my subject's anatomy, but rather to capture my subject's; character and essence with the ultimate objective to celebrate the nature of life. - Deborah Bigeleisen
