Kali Mandalas
2008
mixed media collage on shaped saris
each mandala measures 1 meter in diameter
This series of mandalas was based on a collection of leaves gathered on daily walks that were not only used as collage materials for the mandalas, but to also invoke ideas surrounding the state of our environment. Kali is a powerful force thought to bring with her, destruction. With destruction comes rebirth. The mandalas act as hopeful tributes to Kali.
