< Galleries | mandalas

Mandala in Sanscrit means circle, and  has devotional and ritual connotations in the East. It symbolises Creation, and the circular nature of existence, as well as the unending vastness of eternity.

My mandalas are inspired by the spiritual designs and patterning of Christian rose windows, Hindhu and Buddhist mandalas, and Islamic tile patterns as well as Meso-American stone carvings and calenders. They are created from tiny fragments of my own photos – often of inconsequential significance – cut and formed into tile shapes to hint at an expansive landscape of our inner being. These pieces reflect the underlying symmetry and interconnectedness of all things. They journey into the mystery, and explore the relationship between the part and the whole, matter and spirit, the individual and the cosmos.
