Mandalas by Larry Weekes
This body of work revolves around the idea that we are all interconnected. We are individuals with unique energies and thoughts, but we are part of the greater universe. Today we live in a world that fuscous on the “I”. We forget that we are part of the “WE”. The When the “I” joins with the “WE” we are part of the greater energy of the universe. This energy can be found in all matter and is there if we take the time to look for it. I use photography because it is a slice of reality, we can alter this realty to tell our story. The mandala series are depictions of individual energies. They are all unique cells. When individual cells are joined together they create an organism of universal beauty.
