This paper is an artist statement describing a manipulation of the Mandelbrot Set equation as the basis for creating semi-figurative images, using a genetic algorithm. Modernist painting is referenced in terms of the play between representation and abstraction. The Platonic implications of the Mandelbrot Set are considered as a point of departure for manipulation of the complex function.
