The Art of the Center: Visualization and the Mandala with enCircled Artist, Richard Entel
An innovation predating GoogleEarth by thousands of years, the densely inventive alternative universe of the MANDALA opens up layer by layer to reveal timeless architecture, subtle landscapes and complex concepts. Learning about the purposeful structure of a mandala can awaken a deeper understanding of the way visualization works.
Rich Entel is a visual artist and physician whose work is part of the current show “enCircled.” He has a strong interest in Tibetan art and has recently traveled to the Indian Himalayas.
He is the son of Syd and Irwin Entel, active members of the Dunedin Fine Art Center.
