Winter Mandala

The Winter Mandala, the natural pigments from Rudice on canvas, 64x84 cm, 2009

Karpíšek's "Winter Mandala" has been left on the artist's garden for the whole winter to be finished by natural process of snowing, raining, melting, winding etc. The abstract concentric circles with a strange spot in the middle could be understood as a metaphor of the Self.
