Museum Mandalas

Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon becomes abstracted yet again at the mercy of Marietta Ganapin’s hole-punch.

Using a mezmerizing mandala form, Ganapin’s labor intensive methods of construction invoke the devotional practice of a monk.  She selects her imagery from gift-shop postcards or museum brochures, using hole punches and cut-outs that are then used as the building blocks of her designs. With great care and attention to detail, the artist transforms these elements into intricately detailed mandalas.
