The artist and mathematician Thomas Egense (born in 1972)
is known as "The explorer of beauty in chaos".
All of his creative artwork is within the field of fractal art.
"Mathematics contain vast landscapes of complexity and structure.
I am a humble explorer travelling through a particular mathematical landscape
in which chaos reigns. Every little step I take changes the view dramatically.
Thus I am very conscious about my steps. Whenever I discover a place that I sense holds beauty within I take a break in my journey.
I stay in the same place for as long as it takes to carve out and paint the beauty that is hiding. A feeling in my body tells me when I am done.
It is an intensive and time consuming process
but also a very rewarding one." -- Thomas Egense, 2011
