"I am in AWE at the divine mathematics revealed in Nature . . . and that is what I seek to capture through my FRACTAL paintings based on the sacred fractal geometry of Nature." --Duncan Tooley
The sacred structure in Nature has recently been formulated as fractal geometry. Nature’s art is composed of self-repeating shapes in different sizes. It is the inspiration for my watercolor paintings and altered photographs. —Duncan Tooley

“The universe is written in the language of mathematics…without which it is humanly impossible to understand a single word of it; without this language, we wander about in a dark labyrinth.” –Galileo Galilei
Binary means ‘having 2 parts.” The binary number system composes all numbers as a series of 1’s and o’s, an ideal match for electrical switches that are either on or off. The rise in technology is the result of the development of binary switches that quickly flip from a zero to a one. First, it was military computers powered by vacuum tubes, then portable radios, calculators and digital watches powered by transistors, and now the billions of smartphones powered by a single chip processor engraved with millions of switches.
I use the binary code of 1’s and 0’s as a backdrop in many of my paintings and altered photographs to reflect the tension between the natural environment (Nature) and rapidly accelerating human technology. ►Go to the Binary Fractals
