Mandalas and Sacred Geometry: A Conversation with Vandorn Hinnant

Sacred%20Geometry.jpg

This is an announcement of the first of what I hope will be a series of online discussions/interviews with people involved in art and transformation.

Vandorn Hinnant is a visual artist currently living in Greensboro, North Carolina. His artwork is a refined synthesis of abstract expressionist painting and Sacred Geometry drawings. His work involves the use of primary, secondary, and tertiary colors and the careful practice of, in his words, “ancient canonical techniques for rendering visible signs of the unseen world.” Many of his works are in corporate collections across North America, and some are in Africa and Europe. Vandorn’s works are created to complement subtle energies beneficial to well-being, and a number of health care professionals have chosen his artwork for their clinics or offices to complement their intent to facilitate their clients’ healing.

Vandorn and I will be discussing art, healing, and transformation in the Art, Healing, and Transformation discussion group. Stop by to read or to join in. A synopsis of our discussion will also appear in a future Flower Mandalas blog entry.

Stay tuned for this and future discussions!

More anon,
