The fractal subdivision

The fractal subdivision.  Made from canvass, paper and acrylic paints.

Yes, it's a predictable title for my cubist experiment, but sometimes the obvious ones are the best.

From the front the relief is monochromatic and is really all about shape and texture.  When you stand directly in front of it the coloured paint is hard to see, but as you change your viewing angle the different colours become more visible.

I haven't framed the picture because I wanted parts of it to wrap around the sides of the canvass.  The composition is made up of square and rectangular blocks, and without a frame the canvass itself becomes one of those blocks, which is better than just having it sitting in the background not interacting with anything else.  I actually think this picture might look silly in a frame.
