Mandalas Painting by Amy Cheng

New York-based artist Amy Cheng creates these beautiful abstract, mandala (Sanskrit for "circle") inspired paintings.

“When I contemplate the energy of life force I think of cells and cell divisions, the universe forming itself out of dust, seeds blooming into plants, all which tend to emerge jewel-like, diaphanous, seductive and playful.”

"I used the circle within a square as a formal device to make centered, iconic images. Eventually I came to see that, although not strictly speaking devotional, the paintings do speak to the sacred, to the largeness of life, to being one with the universe."

"In retrospect I have come to see that I am creating what my friend, the artist Thomas Lyon Mills describes as worlds within worlds with the aim of revealing profound, contemplative, slow, truths."
