Clockwork II by lucid-light Clockwork II by lucid-light

This fractal is a submission to Random Phrase Art Creation Contest held by #PremiumMembers and it is based on phrase "Suicidal Plutocracy" randomly generated by the Random Phrase Generator.

I see the plutocracy as a shiny golden clockwork, the oligarchy of the wealthy. From the outside it looks beautiful, golden and stable. Yet it has a suicidal potential, especially for those ordinary people who do not rule. Rich people have a lot of money and only thing that they want is more money. Plutocracy in our times is a suicidal notion, hence my picture of the Suicidal Plutocracy has a certain feeling of not being stable, slowly drifting to a fall...

This seems like a rich mans death trap it's beautiful in its intricacies. You look at this piece a of art closely, and that's not cogs in a machine, it's spikes and you can't get to the middle without great bodily harm.The colors help mute the danger of the spikes. It almost looks like the middle could be a button or an eye.The energy that comes from the middle seems to almost pulse with an energy. Look as you may to find a way to the middle without getting spiked.The shiny eye in middle make the artwork look almost safe until you take a closer look. It reminds me of a rich mans Preying Mantis

Yes, but once the clock of plutocracy stops, the stoppage initiates said clock into a gear in the clock of theocracy in the truest sense of the word.

I have only just found you and I have to say that the level of complexity in all of your works, not just this one, is absolutely staggering. The ascetic and inherent beauty of fractals is clearly demonstrated here. It is evident that you are extremely talented as an artist first and foremost, but you display something wondrous that mystifies and inspires me at the same time.
Thankyou. :)
