Visual artist Matt W. Moore stepped away from his vibrant geometric paintings and street art to create these impressive organic mandalas. This â€˜Mosaic Mandala Seriesâ€™ was created with found natural elements and skillfully arranged into fascinating geometric designs. On his website he explains the project as follows:
â€œHaving 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.â€
â€œThis 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 lakeâ€™s edge, dried wild grasses from yesteryear, and cut dead branches exposing the rings of the treeâ€™s life. Everything was right there for me, all I had to do was notice itâ€™s potential.â€
