Jonathan is always working and experimenting, finding new techniques to explore, as well as interesting things to photograph. Here he is working with paint, and the never-ending fractal pattern. Fractals are infinitely complex patterns that are self-similar across different scales. They are created by repeating a simple process over and over, in an on going feedback loop. Driven by recursion, fractals are images of dynamic systems – the pictures of Chaos.
Some of the inspiration for Paint Patterns came from abstract painters such as Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock, but they were unable to capture these dynamic systems, as their art needed to dry. Jonathan is able to keep shooting as paint patterns build, change and move.
