This Saturday (1st of August) , the Quays in Oulton Broad will be unveiling a brand new collection of paintings by Nadia Sondh; a young and passionate local artist.
The exhibition is simply named ‘Mandala’ and is a collection of mixed media paintings focusing on the geometric concentric circle designs which represent the universe. Mandalas offer balancing visual elements, symbolizing unity and harmony. The meanings of individual mandalas are usually different and unique to each mandala. The goal of the mandala is to serve as a tool on our spiritual journey as it symbolizes cosmic and psychic order. Each observer has different experiences. However, the overall consensus is that meditating with the mandala leaves the observer in a relaxed state of clarity.
These innovative paintings are created in henna and tea, as well as the more normal acrylic paint. Nadia is a professional henna artist with over seven years of practice after spending four years living and learning the art of Mehndi in Rajasthan, India.
Nadia will be at ‘They Quays’ (1-4 The Yacht Station, Oulton Broad) on Saturday the 1st of August with her henna ready to create your very own mandala henna tattoo, as well as to answer any questions on henna, mandalas, art or the universe!
The exhibition will be open from 9am to 4pm every day except Mondays throughout August.
