Along with being an amazing artist and printmaker, I’m happy to showcase Willamette Valley (local) artist, Gale Everett, who creates these fantastic 3D sculptures that I just love. This one especially…look at all those mandalas! She made this one with waxed mulberry paper cones, wire and a hemlock frame. It definitely sparks the imagination…or rather, the brain. 🙂
About herself and her art she states:
My work utilizes paper in a variety of forms from printmaking to sculpture. … I create translucent sculptures from organic material. … I’m strongly influenced by the surrounding environment in subject and color. … my artwork reflects the surrounding natural environment: from native plants and animals to the river and stream ecosystems.
Gale has this wonderful way of re-creating nature in a delightful way, offering up new and interesting perspectives of Mother Nature’s creations.
You can follow along as she shares her progress on different art pieces she’s creating via her blog site: Sticks, Stones, and Paper Stew.
So, if you were to create an art piece of your brain’s conversations, what would it look like and what materials would you use? For me it would look something like the “whack a mole” arcade game. 🙂
If you would like your mandala to be considered for the “Mandala of the Day”, read how on the Participate page. It’s easy! Or recommend one you’ve seen via my Contact page.
