JULIE GIBBONS

Contemporary Mandala Artist, Scotland

Working in the round, inspired by nature and human ancestry, my work investigates relationships between the inner and outer world. Cyclical rhythms such as the eight-fold-year are explored within the context of the current socio-economic-political climate, personal psychology and the geomythography of my homeland Scotland to inform an exploration of self-inquiry, creative practice and conscious living in these times.

Alongside the development of The Mandala Principle as a guide to right-living, my creative practice sees me concentrate on the circular form and the relationship between centre and container, and the symbolism contained therein. Fresh, bright, colours and simple shapes + pattern are the signature of the output, which can be described as abstract landscape art.

I formulated Mandala Days to serve further development and understanding of The Mandala Principle and a return to creating public artworks outside of the confines of my art journals and sketchbooks. The resulting body of work is a series of mandala art (on canvas, created in acrylic paint) that is inspired by a line of inquiry focussing on the relationship between land, human and art.
