The Mandala Experiment

I started exploring the use of organic materials as part of my design thesis and have continued the work as a passion project that allows me to be an artist. As a minimalist and perfectionist it was important for me to explore my art using new mediums and a different narrative. The work you see here is a bridge between analogue and digital. My way of connecting to something that feels grounded, authentic, and personal. I found that there is nothing as beautiful as the colors, textures, patterns found in nature, hand drawn type, and words that nourish your soul.I chose the symbol of the mandala, which is a spiritual and ritual symbol found in many cultures, employed for focusing attention of practitioners as a spiritual guidance tool, for establishing a sacred space, and as an aid to meditation as the element that connects all these pieces together in some form. Mandalas often exhibit a radial balance, and I like to play with that balance by often times offsetting the work. There is a perfection found in the shape, and when created with organic materials and found objects, there is a natural play at work that continues to explore the concepts of dichotomy that I find so fascinating.
