I have a history of creating very intricate mandalas, and this was the very first one I created. It has traveled to numerous exhibitions throughout the midwest, and I plan to continue its travels until it is sold! :)
This piece symbolizes "The Eightfold Noble Path" of buddhism, in which everyone has the power to live the most promising and noble life they can.
The color selection was chosen to help let this piece "pulse" in and out, and I achieved that wonderfully. It is hard to exhibit that trait on a computer screen, but in person, you will understand completely.
This piece is on canvas, stretched over a wood panel. It is titled, signed and dated on the back. All paints used are Golden Paint and Liquitex Professional acrylics. Reason I mention this, is because I produce my work to last the test of time through using only the highest quality of materials.
This piece also comes with a golden-brown ornate frame, about 2-3" wide.
Throughout my last 20 years in the field of fine arts, I have had an exquisite fascination with color theory and the effects of using the entire spectrum within a work to create illusions and movement. My inspirations such as Bridget Riley and Victor Vasarely have given me the foundation in my studies of their works, and I have built upon that, along with my background in graphic design, to create abstracted portraits, expressionistic designs, and intricate mandalas. Each of my main subject focuses has lone intentions, but comprise the same technique in which my art is created, that allow my work to be an homage to not only individuals or designs, but rather, color in general.
