"Six-fold Infinite Rings", framed
$180.00
This design was created by decorating a fractal tiling with ring graphics, and then making the original tiling invisible. Digital print on acid-free paper, created in 2012, framed in a deep gallery-maple-style frame. For a closer look at the print, please click here. Print no. 5/50. Image size 11-1/4" x 12". Outer dimensions of frame 21" x 21".

   

"Fractal Tessellation of Spirals"
$95.00
"Fractal Tessellation of Spirals" is based on a fractal tessellation of kite-shaped tiles discovered by Dr. Fathauer some ten years earlier. All of the spirals in the print have the same shape (more precisely, they are all similar in the Euclidean plane). Digital print created in 2011. For a closer look at the print, please click here. Archival print on heavy watercolor paper, no. 5/50. Image size 15" x 15".

   

"Tree of Knowledge", framed.
$190.00
This print is based on a fractal arrangement of spirals. A serpent spirals around each spiral tree segment. The knowledge referred to in the print's title is the knowledge of mathematics and science rather than the Biblical knowledge of good and evil. For a better look at the print, which was created in 2003, please click here. Printed on photographic paper, no. 3/50. Framed in a deep gallery-maple-style frame. Image size 20" x 16". Frame outer dimensions 29" x 25".

   

"Dragon Metamorphosis", framed
$150.00
This design employs a figure/ground reversal of the same motif in black and white versions from one side of the print to the other. I.e., the eye perceives black dragons on a white background at left, and white dragons on a black background at right. M.C. Escher used this technique in some of his most famous prints, such as "Day and Night" . In the center a tessellation of dragons is seen in which no background is visible. In between these extremes the mind's interpretation of what the eye is seeing is not as clear cut. The entire design possesses glide reflection symmetry about a center line if the reversal in colors is ignored. Digital print on acid-free paper, created in 2003, framed with a black wood frame. For a closer look at the print, please click here. Print no. 6/25, 2003. Image size 14" x 7". Outer dimensions of frame 25-1/2" x 18-1/2".

   

"Fractal Curves"
$75.00
"Fractal Curves" shows ten generations of an iterative modification of a curve, starting with a circle. Digital print created in 2012. For a closer look at the print, please click here. Archival print on heavy watercolor paper, no. 2/50. Image size 12" x 12".

   

"Fractal Tree No. 5"
$95.00
"Fractal Tree No. 5" is a digital artwork constructed by graphically iterating a photographic building block created from photographs of the base of a rose bush. The rugged appearance of the thorny stalks is juxtaposed with the light feathery appearance of the overall fractal. Created in 2007. For a closer look at the print, please click here. Archival print on heavy watercolor paper, no. 9/50. Image size 14" x 20".

   

"Fractal Tree No. 13"
$95.00
"Fractal Tree No. 13" is a digital artwork constructed by graphically iterating a photographic building block created from photographs of some twigs from a palo verde tree. Created in 2010. For a closer look at the print, please click here. Archival print on heavy watercolor paper, no. 5/50. Image size 15" x 18".

   

"Infinity", framed
$170.00
This print is based on a unicursal fractal knot. The starting point is a particular projection of the trefoil knot. The knot is iterated by incorporating two smaller copies within loops in the starting knot in such a way that the resulting more complex knot remains unicursal. Additional iterations using the same algorithm yield a fractal knot. The figure-eight-like feature is similar to the symbol for infinity, and the crossings continue to infinity in the fractal limit. Digital print on acid-free paper, created in 2006. Framed in a natural wood frame with a white mat. For a closer look, please click here. Print no. 2/50. Image size 11" x 11". Outer dimensions of frame 22" x 22".

   

"Spiraling Flowers"
$95.00
Tessellated flowers and leaves are arranged in a pattern with eight-fold rotational symmetry (four-fold if color is considered). Selective coloring of the outer and inner portions of the flowers brings out sets of counter-rotating spirals.The design is a fractal with a lone singular point at the center, since zooming in repeatedly about the center reveals similar structure at any magnification. Digital print created in 2011. For a closer look at the print, please click here. Archival print on heavy watercolor paper, no. 5/50. Image size 16" x 16".

   

"Bats and Owls", framed
$190.00
"Bats and Owls" is a limited edition screen print in which the self similarity characteristic of fractals is employed in the design. Escher's "infinity limit" drawings exhibit the same sort of self similarity (see, e.g. "Heaven and Hell" of 1960, "Square Limit" of 1964, and "Circle Limit III" of 1959). In Escher's designs, the perimeter is either circular or square, however, and the motifs only become infinitesimally small at the perimeter. Framed in a glossy black frame with rounded front. For a closer look at the print, please click here. Print no. 29/40. Hand printed by the artist in 1994 on acid-free paper. Image size 17" x 17", frame outer dimensions 27" x 27".

   

"Scorpion, Diamondback, and Phoenix"
$60.00
This tessellation is based on the famous non-repeating Penrose tiles. Silkscreen print, hand printed and signed by the artist in 1993. The diamondback rattlesnake and scorpion tiles together are formed from the Penrose kite, while the Phoenix-bird is formed from the Penrose dart. For a closer look at the print, please click here. Print no. 40/48. Image size of 12" x 12"; paper size of 19" x 18". 1993. Unframed.
