THE MANDALA IS BROKEN:
The pandemic managed to bring the world to its knees because it irreparably shattered the mandala that we’re all so used to living in, it disrupted the familiar patterns of our lives, it overpowered the drum beat we’ve become accustomed to.
This underlying rhythm, in some cultures is represented by various geometrically balanced circular arrangements of colors, shapes and patterns. These arrangements are often referred to as mandalas and traditionally provide a pathway to balance, harmony and peace
I began to paint broken mandalas, patterns that have been torn apart, rhythms that have lost their beat. I’m attempting to find beauty in the chaos that’s engulfed humanity.
I see mandalas in commercials on television. I see mandalas in my dreams. Everywhere I look, I see mandalas! And now…here they are for your viewing pleasure.
