Old scratched up records end their musical journey as they become dormant and unplayable. This work picks up where the stunted life of a discarded record leaves off, imbuing them with new energy and purpose.
These 3 acrylic paintings on vinyl are mandalas - a Sanskrit word that means ‘sacred art within a circle.’ Each vinyl record mandala is a visual meditation reflective of the time of its creation and directly inspired by the natural world.
