The Dance by Jeff Hess

337 – The Dance Mandala

I present to you another extraordinary local (to me) artist, Jeff Hess, who creates thought provoking, experiential art such as this one in which he captures light, spots of color, and water in action forming an instant in time where we see many mandalas in the making…either going into, out of, or just right into a circular shape. What an amazing image!

110 – Mystery Mandala

Oregon artist, Jeff Hess, likes for people to experience his art/photography without actually knowing what it is or what’s going on. I found this out when I asked him for more information about this object that I found as part of his “In Pursuit of Gravity” collection. He’d rather we enjoy it instead of trying to figure it out.

99 – Leaves & Stones Mandala

When I see images of nature-inspired mandalas, it takes my breath away. The little kid voice in me says “I wanna do that!”

And that was my reaction yet again when I found today’s MotD from photographer & land artist, Dietmar Voorwold, and his remarkable land art creations. My biggest challenge was figuring out which of his pieces to showcase…they all are spectacular.
