Having started my career by painting Rembrandt-like portraits of luminous white roses, I credit my discovery; of fractals for transforming my artistic vision, and changing the direction and force of my work. Always; working with a single image of a flower, or a component thereof, I have stripped away the mask of the; exterior form and magnified the interior thousands of times to depths beyond what is visible to the naked eye.; My subject is no longer simply a flower; it is a dynamical system existing in a chaotic universe filled with; energy, turbulence, mystery and beauty. Additionally, I have discovered that the system repeats itself through; multiple phenomena. This is where I have taken the literal definition of fractals, and put my creative voice to; the principles. Though the non-representational work may suggest a natural likeness - a wing, a wave, a shell,; or even a human form - my vision invites a fresh dialogue between aesthetics and science.; I do not subscribe to rules. Though I have a general vision at the onset of a new painting, I have had so many; serendipitous discoveries during the painting process that have often taken the finished work somewhere; that I never foresaw initially. Every painting is a fresh beginning and a new journey; and I cherish the; unpredictability. Just as my senses are challenged with every new painting, I want to stimulate the viewer's; imagination and emotions. Because color is so subjective, I have chosen to paint many of the non-objective; works in neutral analogous tones to provoke a discourse with the viewer. - Deborah Bigeleisen
