The "Vortex" Series [8" x 8"]
These postage stamp pattern fields, entitled my “Vortex” series, are my interpretation and reinvention of mandalas, or meditative microcosms. The design is inspired by several artworks in Frank Stella’s “Black Series” from the late 1950s. I admire Frank Stella because of his simple, but beautifully moving, pattern work and his intuitive use of color.
