Digital Art - Digital Art On Canvas Or Paper
A wonderful young man was interviewing the artist about his two paintings with depictions of Jesus, �The Transformation� and �On the Third Day.� His two questions were simple and straight forward: �Why do artists depict Jesus as a fair skinned man? Why not show him as a Middle Eastern man or a Northern African man as he probably was?�
In response, this depiction of Christ�s Ascension on Easter Day combines the figure of a Northern African Jesus against the background of a delicate fractal digital image. Fractals are created when complex mathematical formulas find order in a world of chaos. As one Fractal artist so eloquently stated: �Balancing on a knife edge between order and chaos lies a world in which mathematical perfection shows its beauty through mysterious depths and swirls of complex elegance.� Perhaps this is a more accurate description of Christ bringing to the world a sense of order from all the chaos, and the fractal that was created, showing the true meaning of a Halo�s glow.
