This artwork is inspired by the mandala, an ancient visual form that is widely used in eastern religions and in the western New Age movement. Mandala patterns are usually circular or square with a high degree of radial symmetry. They can be incredibly elaborate, always with an exact centre. The mental projection of oneself at the centre of a complex pattern may symbolize individual enlightenment amidst universal chaos. Yogic practitioners and Tibetan monks consider these designs to be Sacred Geometry and believe them to have healing properties. When accompanied by meditation, the mandala can focus the mind, release mental stress and promote a calm disposition. In my own experience, these compositions have a very calming effect. After only a few minutes of contemplating a mandala pattern, I usually come away with an elevated feeling of well-being: it's kind of miraculous, especially when I'm feeling stressed or depressed.
