BEYOND THE MANDALA

"The Essence" (Colombo, March 1995), my first oil painting based on a geometric composition, was the starting point for all of my subsequent works.  Without having a preconceived objective in mind, I drew on the canvas a pattern of interconnected geometric shapes, extending from the central point of the canvas to its edges.   Although I have painted with other media, I have always returned to using oils.  Nearly all of the works included here were created using oil paint applied to canvas board, unless noted otherwise.
