SEVEN Mandalas : Durga Mandala 


Durga "the inaccessible"  is the most popular incarnation of Devi and one of the main forms of the Goddess Shakti in the Hindu pantheon. Durga is believed to unleash her divine wrath against the wicked and demonic forces that threaten peace, prosperity, and dharma. Durga's power  entails destruction to empower creation. 

The Mandala has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. A mandala is a meditation tool that helps bring one further down the path to enlightenment .


While experimenting with the limitless possibilities of fractal geometry, I found out that along the given axis of a 3d virtual model of the Julia or Mandelbrot set, the diagrammatic fractal iterations evolved into magnificent patterns that uncannily looks like Tibetan Thankga Mandalas.

Even the alcoves of the outer circles resemble the Bodhisattva designs. It is as if Buddhist monks could have experienced in the clarity of their focus such an unimaginable feat of abstract thinking.

As one of the earliest traditional painter to embrace the digital media, (Image de Synthese.) I work with professional imaging software, not as a medium to emulate techniques of the past, but to the contrary as a medium that  opens the door to new horizons of artistic expression by surpassing traditional techniques.

The digital media allows  limitless possibilities of color relationship and color subtleties which do not exist in traditional methods, that is why I often compose combine and bring forward my traditional work to be enhanced by the digital media.
