Mandala Series

Lisa Sheirer’s mandala series, Circle of Life, is now hanging in the clinic! Writes Lisa: “Circle of Life explores the creative process as a form of meditation or distraction. Focus and loss of focus. This work is a continuation of the Entropic Mandala Series I’ve been working on for the last 2 years. Over my career, I have moved back and forth between stark, muted palettes to overlapping patterns and bright colors. The symmetry comes (I think) from the craziness in the world right now. But, even though order is desired, each composition is not truly balanced and there are intentional and unintentional (fully embraced) flaws. Each print is composed from photos taken in different life settings. Most of the photos were taken on my iPhone and manipulated using Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator. The series is titled “Entropic Mandalas” because the images are simultaneously building up and breaking down. These mandalas are both meditative and disruptive.” Learn more about Lisa’s work here:

If you do not want to use ythe Val-Pak coupons you receive in your mailbox, please bring them into our clinic. We are working with local agencies to redistribute among those in need.
