|In 1987, while Lucia was teaching a Computer Art course at the University of California, Santa Cruz, she heard Benoit Mandelbrot lecturing about Fractal Geometry. Mandelbrot spoke of a geometry whose equations could generate images of realistic mountains, skies, leaves, in other words fractals are the numbers of nature. Lucia was speechless. Numbers took on a new meaning. From that moment on, numbers became an important element of her visual vocabulary.
|Lucia has always considered herself a painter whether she was using acrylics on canvas or equations on a computer. In 2007, Lucia began exploring images generated with numbers. Finally in 2014, she had her series Blobs and Brushstrokes.|
