 Mandala  A Journey of the Mind’s Eye – Ellen Henrici, Dyke Gallery

 “The birth of stars at the beginning of time was the original inspiration for the mandala paintings. Out of chaos the beautiful order of the universe was formed and this vision lives at the root of my creative process. Within the layers of color, I light upon a focal point from which a dance of rhythm, balance and dimension flows, creating a journey of the mind’s eye.” – Ellen Henrici
