An artist wanders around Brooklyn.
hey...I like the off-centriccity and varaiation from the normal "agreeable" mandalas. It is amazing what happens when you push.Now I am much more interested and engaged visually....like I can't help but be, as opposed to..."ok, what am I looking at now?"
Bug Number Two rocks.Can you tell us how you do these mandalas? Do you trace out a circle first? You alluded to there being a method, and I know there are rituals about mandalas and their creation and so forth, but I'm hazy on details.
Well, if there's some sort of ritualistic thing I'm supposed to be doing to make it a real 'mandala,' I'm probably not doing it. I use a compass for the circle, and a ruler to divide the circle in six sections, like a snowflake. The rest is freehand.I'm a lot more engaged, visually, too--the normal ones felt like just an exercise in training my hand. These feel like I'm actually inventing something.
you ARE actually inventing something/. At least for my eyes and experience.
A compass! What a strange and antique instrument! Next you'll be making daguerrotypes.
Next you'll be making daguerrotypes.Thankfully, my friend RA has already got that covered. More or less. Luddites, unite.
