This below shows the soul of a cauliflower. But then, George Washington Lambert was no slouch, either. He combines the art of the Baroque with the clarity of light and color from Hopper.The genius of this painting is to stand back, and see how it becomes almost photorealistic when you aren’t looking at the brush strokes. Then you take a step forward, where your eyes are battling between the painting you know you see and the painting in your mind, and it becomes truly beautiful. This is a technique borrowed from the Baroque. It is one of the reasons why we just can’t get rid of that movement, no matter how offensively Christian it may be. ;)
And, because I’m obsessed, let’s look at my claims about Cauliflowers and Fractals.That is a Julia section borrowed from the set below. But that’s not all. In a different dimension, the Z axis, there is also this fractal below. Here’s a more clear picture of what I’m talking about. Remember, it’s in the Z axis, the axis of depth.
And, if you are bored with Fractals and want something a little more 3D, just call me a teapot. I’ll happily give this one a good home.A final note– as glorious and attractive to the eye a cauliflower is, we must acknowledge that there is something absurd about them. Here too, Wikimedia delivers. I told you Cauliflowers Rock!
