MANDALA (n.) [Sanskrit: Circle]
"A symbol representing the effort to reunify the self."
The artwork created by Derek Gedney is done so with the utmost focus, care and precision... yet, at the same time there is always an underlying clairvoyant energy at work. Some of these stunning mandalas are hand drawn images at first, they are then digitally transformed and enhanced with beautiful colors that build breathtaking atmospheres. Others are created digitally using a variety of photo editing programs and software. No two mandalas are ever alike in the same sense that no two snowflakes are ever alike... it's the same principle at work. Each one holds a divine uniqueness and spirit of its own that shines positive forms of light and energy into their presence.
"I never have a plan or set time aside to draw or create, when the feeling comes... I pull out my pencil or open a program and see what happens"... "I can get so drawn into the infinite vastness of the fractal patterns, that I feel like I'm not even on earth anymore" says Derek. These amazing works of natural art create magical feelings of wonder and awe within all those who gaze upon them. We trust you will enjoy this unique display of fine artistic creation, vision and craftsmanship... and we hope that you may consider bringing some of these harmonious energies home with you as well. Namaste~
A mandala can be used as a form of meditation for the purpose of gaining knowledge that primarily resides within each of us. Simply get inside the mandala, fall into it, swim into it, let it absorb all of your attention. As you slowly fall into the mandala, you will begin to feel lighter, and more intuitive thoughts arise. Meditating with a mandala leaves the observer relaxed and balanced, coming away feeling relieved with resolution, clarity and harmony.
