A Year of Mandalas

This content has been archived. It may no longer be relevant

There is something about symmetry that has always fascinated me, particularly radial symmetry. This is the symmetry of the mandala. I have been drawing mandalas for many years. The past few years I have taken photographs of flowers and foliage and used the computer to turn them into what I call “Botanical Mandalas.”

I decided to spend the past year exploring the mandala form and variations on radial symmetry. I kept a journal of my thoughts in this process, along with the images, in blog format. Over the course of the year, I tried to create a new work each week. Images and text are chronicled in my blog: http://ayearofmandalas.blogspot.com/

“A Year of Mandalas” is at State of the Art from Feb. 2 through Feb. 27, 2011. A reception for Daniel will be held Friday, Feb. 4 from 5-8pm at the gallery.
