“It took nearly 50 years for me to discover that Inspiration can exist in Fractal Art: The viewer can tap into Higher Consciousness. Find Balance through Complex Numbers. Hear the Sound of Colorful Cosmic Music. Identify a potential catalyst for Positive Change. Fractals Emanate a Peaceful and Relaxing Resonance throughout Multi-Dimensional Space.”

-Nina Joy Rizzo, June 2016

Adults never explain to children the importance of Math—the building blocks in the cosmos, the formation of the physical universe, the beauty of things grown naturally or fabricated. Neither did I know the fun you can have playing with Math. As a child, I would have preferred to know there was DESIGN in Math; tangible, intriguing and creative. Had I known, everything would’ve been easier.

As a child, I was strongly attached to a Spirograph, using colored pens in the tiny holes of the various wheels. I ruminated over which color to pick although there were only a handful in existence in the late sixties. Once I had completed the spinning of the “cool” designs, I’d color in the spaces they created, stimulating the brain until I had my fill and came to rest.

In middle school, adults told me, “Math is important, you can be an engineer and build bridges when you grow up.” Ugh! The possibilities were equally incomprehensible when they said, “You can be a physicist or scientist if you learn math.” Although I was able to imagine becoming a person in these professions because the thoughts evoked intrigue to my young mind, they still remained impossible to grasp as I struggled to simply get by in Math class, passing notes to kill the time; only later assigned to a Tutor.

Existing in the body of an adult, still longing for a second chance at childhood, I find myself creating Fractals. Merging concepts of Quantum physics while flirting with colors. ART EXPERIMENTS WITH MATH.

When I created “Karlion”, I had a flashback, a connection to my childhood: The moment I saw the completed image, I remembered the countless hours I had spent playing with my Spirograph. Then, it hit me! Wow! Coming full-circle, I was playing with Math!

If only Kindergarten had been solely devoted to Math Made Interesting, my path in life would have been shorter, far more direct and a lot Less stressful. What my journey has taught me is,

MATH PLUS ART CREATES BEAUTIFUL IMAGES AND PRETTY PICTURES TO HANG UP

Stimulate the mind at an early age. Hang a fractal in your child’s room.

Perhaps, The Bath is the single most important installation in the house, although it is often the very last to be decorated.

The Bath is so-o many things: Sometimes it is closed tight and intimate, locking up the Spirit in a protective dim glow.  Other times, it is gloriously spacious beckoning the brilliance of a new day.  Nonetheless, we enter desperate to rid ourselves of the toil and stress of daily struggle with urgency.

The Miracle of the Bathroom is in the stoic silence it possesses; awaiting our most pressing need. The Bath offers us the stepping stone into a zone of comfort, a place of rest and repose.

In The Bath, our soul purpose is to. . .

Renew, Rethink, Rewind, Release, Relax, Reinvent and Rejuvenate.

As we give up the old and tired exterior, magically we restore a vital interior part of ourselves.

The Mastery of Art in The Bath is in the unimposing message it carries.  The Bath Art creates an ambience conducive to our collective needs.  An artistic selection would best reflect calmness and low energetic movement. Contrast and clutter are unacceptable.

A fine choice for The Bath might be one of these. . .
MOM FROM THE LOTUS is an unimposing array of rich and luscious browns showcased by a hint of bronze flair. These melted chocolate waves traverse the surface and offer us a moment of reprise and contemplation.  When we gaze into its labyrinth, we are swept along a trajectory.  The energy follows us, guiding us as we delve deeper into our own thoughts.  As the exterior world melts away, we are gracefully welcomed inside our own Temple. Here, we can be at peace.

PHETOOSH is a charmer for The Bath.  While maintaining its elegant appearance which suggests a slab of quality Italian marble, the colors and energy of this image are bold and daring. The nonsymmetrical patterns have neither beginning, nor end.  Soft and soothing infusions are eye-pleasing hues of terra cotta and beige inviting the Spirit to be free.  We tune into a crystalline source of earthly beauty and grace that grounds and surrounds us as we enjoy private time.

MAYAN SHADOWS immerses us in water.   When we require an ocean in the palms of our hand, it gives us blue serenity, a calm so subtle, we forget its presence but feel the immense force of its nature. With a blend of golden brown the hints of sand along the ocean floor, we watch our feet sink deeper into the Earth that centers us.

Indeed, we have many rooms in the house. And each room contains a different energy.  Each has a rank of importance. Consider the benefits of raising the ranks of The Bath to a higher elevation.  Adorn it with a stunning image by NJoyFractals.

When you pick a piece of custom art for your home, office or living space you want it to be unique and you want it to somehow make a statement. You often say it must speak to you and possibly your guests. You want what no one else has and you’re not the only one. Thank goodness we have so much to choose from! But, have you ever noticed how different pictures and different colors carry particular energies to them. Perhaps what you are attracted to is not so much the “art” but the “energy” of the art.

The fосаl роіnt оf interior dеѕіgn no longer has to rely оn abstract or іnаnіmаtе іmаgеs.  Instead, dеѕіgnѕ which are inspired bу color, nаturе, and life itself, are what NJoyFractals are all about. (as seen in photographs).

All sorts of studies explain how color affects us and how it provides a substrate to our mood and mindset:

Red can represent danger but, it can also suggest romance. In some arenas and disciplines red is known to increase circulation and stimulate the mind. Blues are used to soothe illness and also to increase productivity and increase intuition.  Yellow can be interpreted as caution, but then again it’s been known to increase concentration. White represents purity, all things clean and clear.

Researchers say more research must be done on the subject. So, until they come up with enough research to prove how colors affect us, let me tell you a little story about how colors influenced me and a few people I once knew…

I was a product of the 60’s and moved from NY to California where my parents bought a nice house for us to live in. It was so nice that it drove me nuts. I was afraid to walk through the living room because everything was so organized and pristine. Each item was on display in an exact place. God forbid I might move something, I’d surely get into trouble. I declared that room as dangerous. Yet, it’s what my parents wanted and nonetheless, it made me sick.

In my mind I knew it wasn’t my style and I found no comfort or sense of welcome in that space. To me, they were just showing off fancy stuff that gave an unapproachable uneasiness. Even the pillows were unwelcoming. They were made of some type of nice fabric on one side but then ruined with a scratchy and shiny material on the other. They were so rough you couldn’t put them behind your back, no less under your neck. Did they even serve a purpose? Were they functional? I learned they were just for show. I questioned that room, the way it felt booby-trapped, and the impact it had on me, so I stayed out of it at all costs.

The den, our designated playroom, was not much better. In fact, it was more like a dungeon. Dark, musty, brown and filled with horrid tribal type wooden statues and masks that quite frankly, scared me to death. But, that’s where the TV was situated, right in the middle of the bookshelf and smashed between a million books which were surrounded by those foreboding carvings. Everything was miserable, scary and depressing in that room except for the bindings and edges of all the colorful books. They were the only flair in our den of a playroom. They were the only things in the room that were interesting to look at, and I was drawn to them. I’d spend my time flipping through the pages, hoping to find colorful pictures somewhere in the middle. I did find some, but I had to hunt through so many before I was rewarded with just a few.

Now, just down the street, I had these particular neighbors that were really “groovy.” I mean, they were really, really groovy. They were free-spirited and into cool things. They burned incense, had a laughing Buddha statue and listened to great rock n roll music. They “hung out.” They talked about the “vibe” having to be just right. I had no idea what they meant, I just knew I “grooved” with it. Their kitchen was painted all red and highlighted with a garden green color and delicate yellows. I thought those colors were an amazing choice. They were Italian, like me, so they’d joke and say, “We like it red! It reminds us of how much we love our tomatoes!” That kitchen was full of life and overflowing with love. Yes, yes of course, there was great food too.

All their bedrooms were unique, as each room had its own intense color. I was given a choice of which room I’d like to sleep in when I’d stay overnight. I’d pick a different room each time. There was a green room, a pink room and a blue room. I loved each room equally as each had its own energy and its own feel based on the particular color it sported. All I knew was that I’d rather do my homework in their blue room and often times I’d go over to study and write my homework papers at their house, in that room.

I remember there was an incredibly comfortable yellow couch in the living room that had these leopard pillows strewn over it. On the wall above was this really colorful psychedelic drawing which they said was sacred geometry. Incredibly engaged, I would experience the most exciting and inviting feeling each time I entered that room. I literally would throw myself on the couch, as if I were the girl in the Calgon commercial. Remember her? She would say, “Calgon, take me away!” I loved that couch and the beautiful image on the wall. What I loved most though were the leopard pillows! Made with soft material on both sides they were fluffy, daring, and enticing. I loved them. That room rang with bold colored accents and all together they created a warm, friendly and oh so comfortable feel.
