I was first fascinated by the nazar at the after kindergarden carer's home back in childhood, as she had them on her windows and doors. When I asked her what they are for she told me: "they are for good luck!" Many years later I had a dream about doing nazar style mandala street art in Melbourne and subsequently I found myself decorating most of Melbourne's city streets as a street artist in the early 90's. All the powders, chalks and other materials were gifted to me, as if from nowhere so I made very good use of them. This activity culminated in me being invited to do a street mandala for the International Women's Day exhibition outside the Women's gallery. After this I started designing meditation mandalas for an international meditation group and then went on to a successful run of sales until I was all mandala-ed out in 1997. This is one of the first intuitively driven nazar/mandala forms I have created in many years as "Pushing the Boundaries" exhibition is the perfect opportunity to explore the use of non traditional materials in this format! I have used alot of semi precious stones to create the line work including: ruby, rose quartz, amazonite and sunstone. The base is alcohol ink. The eye itself is made from collaged fabric, silk paper, dry glass medium and metallic lustre glass. The canvas support has been silk paper lined from behind for extra durability. The work is very highly detailed evoking my working style from the 90's and also shows a new emerging stylistic form first expressed last year as mixed media brooches, sold at the Contemporary Artists Society Australian National Brooch Show!
