Pixel Painting V Made with Cellular Automata - Purple Lantern

This is an ORIGINAL acrylic painting from my series "Pixel Paintings." In this series, I explore the designs created with cellular automata. This painting is the fifth large piece in the series.

Two other paintings from this series were selected for the 2016 Mathematical Art Exhibit of the Joint Mathematics Meetings, Seattle, Washington.

In this series, I am trying to achieve a sense of rhythm, repetition, order and chaos. I am trying to create a balance between organic and geometric.

Each pixel has many layers of paint, making the colors rich and complex. The colors are mostly pink, purple, gray blue and black, but there are lots of other colors in there for depth and contrast. I used some metallic pigments in the darkest and lightest pixels, which give it a subtle glow, and the colors shift slightly as you walk past it. It's more luminous in real life than I was able to capture in these photos.

20" by 30", unframed. The sides are painted black so it doesn't need a frame. This piece is for sale in my Etsy shop. Thanks for looking.
