CROCHET WEB MANDALA

 

CROCHET WEB MANDALA

MATERIALS:
WATERCOLOUR & GOUACHE ON PAPER

These paintings became a fusion of influences from my family and childhood. They are derived from radial and spiral patterns observed in nature, such as the spiderweb or seashell from my time exploring the bush and seaside. Crochet blankets and textiles such as those my mother thrifted for the home she created. The mandala, sacred geometry imagery and incredible stories that my maternal grandmother bought back from her 13 pilgrimages to India throughout my childhood. This has been combined with my love of colour, its beneficial impacts and reflections on mindfulness practice.
