Memory Mandala

Image

I have been working on this piece over the summer months, piecing it together is like making a jigsaw.

Moving house encouraged me to make the most of my samples from first and second year rather than keeping them preserved for technical files. Within the Mandala are samples focusing on Islamic pattern and sacred geometry from a screen printing project, and again I approached similar designs in a project focusing on symbolism, which included printing again and embroidery. An extra element are triangles of my favourite rusted samples from my ongoing experiments in the last year, as well as rusted/dyed hanks, also collected items (everything from mussels and other shells to socks and liberty fabrics) encased in clear PVC.
