Another supporting series in my solo exhibition Recycled Rejections is "The Intersection of Mornings". I love meditation and creating mandalas. A big discovery was this form of mandala and my continuing evolution with it. I've collected the patterns from various sources and recreated them in pen and ink onto an old dictionary from 1950. It is beyond repair and I felt this gives the beautiful text and pages a new way of interpretation. The tiny line drawings are exquisite and I've worked with them in my mandalas.
In addition, there are found treasures, feathers and things I've found while on my runs and hikes in the early mornings.
I seem to get my best visions and ideas then and there is something magickal about finding items left from the night. Being first to see it, to wonder how, why, who.
At present I am working on two very large mandalas in this style which will be featured next year in the Frameworks external exhibition with the Manly Art Gallery. Very exciting. I have incorporated my passion and studies with Sacred Geometry, along with my love of all things Joseph Cornell for this and am so pleased that the gallery is recognizing this wonderful accessible way to present artwork.
This artwork measures 30x 40cm
tile: "Wednesday Dreams and Other Plans"
