Paul Allen is showing his stunning mandala works for the first time.
Painted in gouache and acrylic on canvas, Paul Allen’s 25+ year relationship with mandalas began as a simple and playful exploration of the geometry of the circle using a drawing compass.
While mandalas have been used symbolically to represent unity or wholeness in the artistic traditions of many cultures and religions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Christianity, Paul’s designs are secular in their intent.
Painted for his own therapeutic meditation – with this series created to help manage anxieties related to the pandemic – Paul is showing his works publicly for the first time.
His practice of creating mandalas is a means of self-therapy, helping to calm the tumultuous waters of an anxious mind.
You’re invited to unwind with him, showing until 23 December 2022
