Images: Mandala Series (2005-2006) handcut inkjet print on paper.

MKUH Level 2: Corridor Exhibition between Ward 6 and ICU/Neonatal

Informed by natural forms Astrid Bärndal’s mandalas, are reminiscent of delicate snowflake patterns, tinged with colour. Each artwork is formed of a three-layered inkjet print designed by the artist, painstakingly cut by hand with a scalpel.  

Bärndal’s, artworks were selected for display at MKUH from our previous online exhibition Mindful Mandalas which you have re-explore here. The exhibition looked at the traditional meaning and contemporary uses of Mandalas, in relation to arts and health in particular.  

︎Mandala inspired activities to try at home.

About the Artist
Bärndal trained as an industrial textile designer, but found she was more interested in fine arts and crafts. The structural precision forms of these mandalas echo the architectural forms and character of space that span her work.
