Koch Curve in Paul Laffoley Painting
Koch Curve in Paul Laffoley Painting
Description: Nicely drawn Koch snowflake in one of Paul Laffoley's masterful paintings.
"The World Soul of Plotinus"
These are 6x6ft in oil, acrylic and hand-placed lettering.
None of this is digitally rendered .. all done by hand in traditional media.

He was incorporating fractals into his paintings as early as the mid-1970s (Alexander horned sphere). One of his paintings from 1985 has a beautiful Mandelbrot paintied in oil that i'm working on getting a photo of.

Anyhow, i'm posting a series here of fractals appearing in the otherworldly philosophical art of Paul Laffoley, a Boston artist who is mildly autistic and spent literally 35 years living in a warehouse space, working alone and produced nearly 800 6x ft paintings of extraordinary complexity, eccentricity and beauty. He recently is being recognized by the larger art-community as a truly rare visionary genius.

You can read a good intro to his ideas and see many more pics at the myspace I put together for him. http://www.myspace.com/paullaffoley
