I really, really, like this fractal. It has a beautiful colour palette, and the texture resembles brush strokes.
Normally, it would be really easy to get me going on a rant about the pointlessness of modern art. Randomly slapping a paint brush against a canvas, throwing paint at a wall sized canvas, etc., to me, just isn’t art. The only art involved is in convincing someone to pay a lot of money for it.
But, maybe, sometimes, modern art is more than random paint splashes and hucksterism. Don’t get me wrong, slapping a red stripe down a blue painted canvas shouldn’t be worth $1.8 million, especially if the bill is being footed by taxpayers. On the other hand, sometimes modern art can be thought provoking, or at least pleasant to look at.
