FRACTAL ART: THE ART OF MATHEMATICS |
(Watch the Slide Show of the Exhibition)

Clouds are not spheres, mountains are not cones, coastlines are not circles, and the bark of trees is not smooth, nor does lightning travel in a straight line"...
Benoit Mandelbrot, The Fractal Geometry of Nature (Tusquets Editors,1997).


In order to introduce us to the work of Alicia D'Angelica and her digital phantasmagorias, we must first recognise the need to find a geometry that takes into account the real aspects of natural phenomena. An idea that leads the artist to use various technical tricks, the panorama of which reveals to us, that step that places her work a little beyond the rest of the arts. Thinking about Fractal Art today, implies going through diverse territories in crossing, where the artistic subject and the computer, experience and creativity are only some of the topics, from which its existence could be thought of. Alicia D'Angelica crosses the border where creation and its practice are defined, whether by 3D Design, Fractals, 2D and 3D Animations or Video, to materialize through the mathematical processing of data, where in a metaphorical way, it is the rhythms of nature that matter.

Each of the images shown here is the result of an iterative numerical process, of complex mathematical calculations, which would be impossible to carry out without the use of a computer. Hence Fractal Art is considered a branch of Digital Art, where the artist must direct the assembly of calculation formulas, texturing, colour schemes, palettes and their necessary parameters. And each of these elements can and will be modified, adjusted, aligned and modified again in an effort to find the right combination. A space that, over time, goes from the joy of fortuitous discovery to the joy of creation, the result of a profession and a plastic sensibility. Where the rigorousness of the process of realisation will reflect the final result. This defines that what always matters is the artist and her attitude. This speaks to us of a progressive refinement of her techniques through a systematic exploration of new expressive possibilities, which contribute to accentuate the complexity and beauty of the creative process. We know that we are on the verge of an important change in the representations created with the help of machines. We find ourselves, then, before a plural and suggestive work around the image and the chosen medium, which at the same time as it transports us to a parallel world, induces us to reflect on an aesthetic discourse, which is without a doubt, a poetic branch of Digital Art.

EPSON FOUNDATION ACCOMPANIES ARTIST ALICIA D'ANGELICA AT ARTECLÁSICA 2012
(Press Release by Epson Argentina)



Within the environment of the ARTECLÁSICA CONTEMPORÁNEA 2012 Fair, the EPSON Foundation accompanies the exhibition "About spheres, circles and curves", a new series of fractal flames, by the artist Alicia D'Angelica; which will be on show from Thursday 3 to Monday 7 May at the COSTA SALGUERO Centre.

BUENOS AIRES, 02 May 2012 - EPSON FOUNDATION accompanies the artist Alicia D'Angelica in her fourth participation in ARTECLÁSICA CONTEMPORÁNEA 2012, where she will exhibit the digital art show of a new series of fractal flames: "About spheres, circles and curves", to be on show from 3 to 7 May at the COSTA SALGUERO Centre, Hall 5.

The fractals of the 'flame' type included in this new series are the result of a constant search for beauty, combining light, shadows and vivid colours that awaken the free interpretation of the spectator, materialised on this occasion in the charm of the combination of spheres, circles and curves.

The printed works are accompanied by an animation made up of 16.200 fractal images rendered in HD, called "Dancing Universes", where the harmonious movement of small and endless universes created from the central theme of the exhibition can be appreciated.
(Watch the animation).

Fractals, discovered in 1975 by the mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot, who coined the term "fractal" from the Latin "fractus" meaning "fractured", represent a geometric figure that repeats itself either exactly or with some variations, expanding or shrinking until it becomes imperceptible. The "FLAME" type fractals, developed by Scott Draves in 1991, are based on a different algorithm and in contrast to the previous ones, self-similar repetitive patterns appear sparsely and the resulting images are more subtle and luminous, whether abstract or figurative, pushing the boundaries further so that they are much more artistic.

This work is known as FRACTAL ART, a purely digital branch of digital art, since it was born, developed and can be made since the advent of the computer. In this type of art, a variety of software is used for fractal designs, which are based on complex mathematical formulas and it is the artist who must modify the values, variables and functions to create his own art works. The colours are also applied on the basis of mathematical formulas and the resulting fractal depends on the artist and his or her ability to handle these tools.

The digital art exhibition "About spheres, circles and curves",
(See Slide Show with artworks at the Exhibition) consists of 23 new works of Fractal Art, produced in 2012. All of them, accompanied with their respective certificate of authenticity, will be exhibited at Booth B12 "Alicia D'Angelica | Digital Fine Art", Hall 5 of the ARTECLÁSICA Fair (COSTA SALGUERO Centre).

The ARTECLÁSICA COMTEMPORÁNEA 2012 Fair will open next Thursday May 3rd at 7pm at the COSTA SALGUERO Centre (Av. Costanera R. Obligado and J. Salguero). Admission by invitation only, and public access is from May 4th from 2pm to 9pm.

It will remain open until Monday 7 May 2012.

Admission is $35 for the general public and $30 for students and senior citizens. Shuttle service every ½ hour to and from Plaza Italia, on Sarmiento Avenue, from May 4th to 7th.

EPSON FOUNDATION ACCOMPANIES ARTIST ALICIA D'ANGELICA AT ARTECLÁSICA 2010



Within the environment of the ARTECLÁSICA 2010 Fair, the EPSON Foundation is accompanying the exhibition FRACTAL FLAME by the artist Alicia D'Angelica, which will be on show from Wednesday 14 July until Monday 19 July at the COSTA SALGUERO Centre.

BUENOS AIRES, July 08, 2010 - EPSON FOUNDATION accompanies the artist Alicia D'Angelica in her second participation in ARTECLÁSICA 2010, where she will exhibit the digital art show FRACTAL FLAME, to be presented from July 14 to 19 at the Centro COSTA SALGUERO Pavilion 1 and 2.

FRACTAL FLAMES is a constant search for beauty, combining light, shadows and different colours that awaken the free interpretation of the spectator.

Fractals, discovered in 1975 by the mathematician Benoit Mandelbrot, who coined the term "fractal" from the Latin "fractus" meaning "fractured", represent a geometric figure that repeats itself either exactly or with some variations, expanding or shrinking until it becomes imperceptible. The "FLAME" type fractals, developed by Scott Draves in 1991, are based on a different algorithm and in contrast to the previous ones, self-similar repetitive patterns appear scarcely and the resulting images are more subtle and luminous, either abstract or figurative; extending the limits further to make them much more artistic.

The work is known as FRACTAL ART, a purely digital branch of digital art, since it is born, develops and takes shape from the advent of the computer. In this type of art, a variety of software is used for fractal designs, which are based on complex mathematical formulas and it is the artist who must modify the values, variables and functions to create his own works. The colours are also applied based on mathematical formulas and the resulting fractal depends on the artist and his or her ability to handle these tools.

The digital art exhibition FRACTAL FLAMES shows 16 works of Fractal Art, divided into 5 new unseen works of 2010 production, 4 new unseen works of the "Golden Series" of 2009 production and 7 of 2008 production. All of them, selected under the curatorship of Cristina Serio and accompanied with their respective certificate of authenticity, will be exhibited at Stand F2 located within the Gallery DESDE LA PLÁSTICA DIGITAL in the PAVILION 2 of the ARTECLÁSICA Fair (COSTA SALGUERO Centre).

All images were printed with EPSON STYLUS PRO 3800 and STYLUS PRO 7800 printers on Epson Velvet Fine Art and Ultra Premium Photo Paper Luster 260 gr., using UltraChrome K3 inks.

The ARTECLÁSICA 2010 Fair will open next Wednesday 14 July at 7pm at the Centro COSTA SALGUERO (Av. Costanera R. Obligado and J. Salguero). Admission by invitation only, and access to the public is from 15 July from 2pm to 9pm.

It will remain open until Monday 19 July 2010.

Admission is $25, with discounts for students and senior citizens. Shuttle service every ½ hour to and from Plaza Italia.

Alicia de D'Angelica and the Magic of Digital Art...

(Exhibition "Playing with Fractals")
La Plata, 10 August - 4 September 2005

At the Círculo Policial of 49th Street between 9 and 10 of our city, Alicia de D'Angelica exhibits works of Digital Art, as an attractive and pleasant lesson.

A few years ago, the Italian Polliacci exhibited in this city with, "digital art". It was met with rejection, indifference or the interest of a few. There was controversy, but little interest from the critics, who were astonished by the new. But "digital art" took root and became a new field of adventure and beauty, and slowly others dared to take the new path, and with good results and a good harvest.

D'Angelica accepted the challenge, and was not afraid of the machine that, for many, is fear and enigma. And she managed to adapt that machine to her dreams and to her deepest intuitions. And from there, emerges the beauty that enchants from the walls of the Círculo Policial, in line, colour and form. We feel, here and there, evocations of the natural world, vital and warm, and a sort of subtle, and a delicate and sublte dance joins these works of singular mystery.

The discussion about the contribution of this new art continues and will continue, perhaps for a long time to come, just as there was with photography or cinema. But it is worth reflecting that these are certainly safe and sound. As is painting, which many predicted its demise in the face of the new technical media of the time. The times have calmed down the waters, and each artist has found his or her own way, as is the case with the Digital Art that Alicia de D'Angelica handles with sensitivity and skill, proving that the complex medium is no an obstacle to expressing beauty in this agitated and confused world, traversed by the sound and fury of so much pain and despair. But, as long as there are artists who venture into a new path, as Alicia de D'Angelica skillfully does, that world will recover its old and cherished hopes!....

Buenos Aires Interest in the V Biennial of Art in Florence


The Senate of the Province of Buenos Aires asked the Buenos Aires Executive to declare of Provincial Interest, the invitation received by the digital artist, Alicia de D'Angelica, to participate in the "V International Biennial of Contemporary Art - Florence", which will take place in the city of Fortezza da Basso (Italy), from the 3rd to the 11th of December of 2005.

LA PLATA, November 16 (Agencia NOVA) "D'Angelica, is a contemporary artist, who resides in our Province and who has stood out in the discipline of digital images, exhibiting important artworks, and being recognised with innumerable prizes and honours for the excellence of her work", emphasised Senator Patricio García, author of the initiative supported by the President of the PJ Block of that Chamber, Juan Amondarain.

He added: "She began in the discipline in 1994, making her work public through various exhibitions she has held since 2000 to date; she is a specialist in 3D and 2D fractal images, with a visual commitment of impressive magnetism".

D'Angelica, at the international level, participated in the III and V Digital Salon in CUBA, also in Florence-ITALIA, recently participated in the group exhibition at the Embassy of Argentina in Washington-USA, and was selected to be part of the jury of the Master Award in Digital Art, organized by BTDesing Art Gallery-ITALIA.

Alicia D'Angelica - the organisation of fantasy

About twenty thousand years ago, drawing pictures of the animals that would be hunted seemed to be a ritual among the first human beings. Those artists showed to be very skilful, and it seems that a great deal of effort has gone into the creation of those art pieces which should be enjoyable enough to be worth making them. Many artistic events followed those formerly ones, but that early man, taking into account the artworks found (i.e.: Altamira Caves), keeps up with us in the intellectual field.

New techniques and new tools have been developed since then altogether with new disciplines to enrich the ample field of the Visual Arts as seen at present.

Nowadays, Digital Art is the avant-garde of these disciplines. Its development possibilities and the constantly new improvements in technology, as its main tool, demands the need of the aesthetics that holds and lets know this present culture new self-expression way.

The EPSON Foundation of Argentina supports Digital Art by organising contests and exhibitions and by making digital artist's artworks be known. Alicia de D'Angelica is one of its most outstanding artists. Her artwork denotes a deep knowledge about the different digital techniques and the results she gets by combining them: she uses the screen as an electronic canvas (Graphic Effects), she may also include photos (Photoart), and she designs objects and landscapes by using 3D software (a new way of sculpting).

Right from the start, she showed her Digital Art in many group exhibitions with other traditional artists (painters, sculptors,...), gaining a place thanks to her talent and effort: the right combination to be impressed by.

Alicia de D'Angelica’s art takes the best out of her fantasy where the colour, shape, line and space seem to have found a new organisation to stay in.
