Fractal pastiche of one of my favorite Dalí paintings.
´Basket of bread´ (1945) [link]

I wanted to recreate the wonderful unbalanced balance the original has, with a slightly different disposition. (Enforced by the different formats of both "canvas" and object.) And the mysterious illumination...

Mandelbulb DE-combinate from Mandelbulb 3D
Photo of table (my own stock) added in Photoshop.

Kind of a work in progress, I read in the wiki article that Dalí spent four months on his first version of it (1926). I will do another (and bigger) version of it for the upcoming exhibition at Värmlands museum in may.

And before anyone asks, of course it is a set of almond bread in the basket…

One of my pieces for the Exhibition at Värmlands Museum:

Exhibition @ Värmlands museum, Sweden.
19th of may - 2nd October 2012

Link to the museum site about the exhibition:

:iconmandelwerk: Johan Andersson aka MANDELWERK & :iconbib993: Jérémie Brunet aka bib993

I am happy to announce my first real life 3D fractal art exhibition.

So all of you who happen to pass the city of Karlstad during this period has the chance to see mine and Jérémie:s works as big prints.

The museum has also arranged with a number of natural fractals, a large Sierpinski pyramid, 3D printed 3D

I've enjoyed others of your series of homages to the master surrealist. This one is verey effective at invoking the original. I've been guilty of 'finding' things reminiscent of the masters myself [e.g. [link] ]. this is my latest tribute to the Impressionists, [link] . It seems to have started a short discussion...
Thanks again aegian! This is one of my own images I am most proud of...
I will check out your images and ask a few questions ;)

Every thing I see, I feel so microscopic! o.O

It looks like a cage of bread (well in this word baskets are like cages :XD:) on a giants table. and maybe I am like 100 time smaller than that basket! :XD:

and yeah reminds of someone I know who ate a pinecone! :XD:

AWESOME work as usual! :squee:
I can get that feeling of being microscopic too.
Glad you like it so much!
Ate a pinecone... ;)
