Is Fractal Art Boring, Too Hard, or an Oxymoron?

I love fractal art. I could stare at it all day long. I find it fascinating (in the literal sense of the word). But I seem to be in the minority.

Let me clarify that by "fractal art" I do not simply mean "pictures of fractals".

Random examples of what I do mean:

I'll admit I can't do much with fractals myself. Perhaps there's a clue there. The learning curve is too steep, or the path from "here" to "there" too opaque.

But even when googling for this post, most of the examples I liked best were found in wallpaper collections (IMO "wallpaper" is the visual equivalent of elevator music).

My personal taste leans towards the more abstract. I find the more literal depictions tend to be cloying and cliched.

So are these the reasons fractal art doesn't have a larger following?

I keep thinking how cool these images would be coupled with some nice typography. Might have to try it.
