Visual artist Matt W. Moore stepped away from his vibrant geometric paintings and street art to create these impressive organic mandalas. This ‘Mosaic Mandala Series’ was created with found natural elements and skillfully arranged into fascinating geometric designs. On his website he explains the project as follows:
“Having spent most of my recent years in cities, and many of my recent months indoors during the wintertime painting on canvas and paper, I decided it was a good play to take full advantage of the sunshine and wilderness and develop a series that would allow me to explore the beauty of Utah, create work with my hands, and celebrate the native color palette of the landscape.”
“This series of mosaic mandalas was created entirely with elements foraged on the mountain and in the valley : River pebbles and stones, shale, red rocks from the high elevations, dead branches from aspen trees, bark from evergreens, cattails from the lake’s edge, dried wild grasses from yesteryear, and cut dead branches exposing the rings of the tree’s life. Everything was right there for me, all I had to do was notice it’s potential.”
