  • INFINITE QUALITIES: A PRINT SERIES OF FLORAL MANDALAS

    The series came about in answer to two questions: "How can my work benefit the greatest number of people?" and "How can visual art support the healing process?" The Circular, mandalic format represents integrity, interconnection and perfection. Each mandala conveys a quality essential to wellbeing: hope, vitality, compassion, unconditional love and creativity, among others. The mandalas are floral because initial Evidence Based Design research indicates that nature motifs have the greatest benefit for hospital patients. Sacred Geometry overlays reveal the order and balance found in nature, a source of comfort and inspiration.

    Museum quality, signed limited edition digital prints are offered in three image sizes: 24" x 24", 12" x 12" and 7.25" x 7.25". Prints made with the addition of hand applied metallic accents are available upon request.

    Visit www.pcturczyn.com for further information about P.C.Turczyn and to see a complete gallery of her work.
