Mandalas

 

“Mandalas”

I began this series in the winter of 2011. The 13 oil pastel mandalas represent a year’s lunar cycle and were created month by month. I was inspired by Swiss psychiatrist Carl Jung and the idea of self-healing in Nature, natural patterns that arose in us in relation to the Divine order. I approached each one in an intuitive state, openly without expectations, allowing it to unfold.

The series was exhibited in Quebec in 2012, and included woven baskets, containers and cordage that I made during this time, a harkening back to primitive art forms made from living natural materials. The patterns that people saw in nature had a direct correlation to what was going on inside them. Containers or catchments, both physical and ephemeral, are a weaving of inner processes.
