"Mandala" is made from vintage photographs of people and their homes found in thrift stores and antique malls. These left-behind images are disconnected from their origins but retain the vague ache of unknowable history as they are transformed into an abstract, nostalgic, sculptural mandala. As representations of the Universe, mandalas are symbols of balance and wholeness. With the combination of the concentric, mirrored, mandala forms and the anonymous lives of the people contained within them, "Mandala" creates a solar system of untold stories.
