Contemporary art rooted in inspiration of zenful living, ambient Visionary music, and meditation practice. A flowing action of intuition and a connection with The Circle. A universal symbol representing wholeness, the Self, the infinite, God. The colors give a visual vibration. Creating art, allowing certain details to come spontaneously or randomly sometimes and still grounded in an idea of natural organic perfection. The paintings are like an instrumental song with the focus on the contemplative experience more so than an actual object or subject.
Nicholaus James Dalton, who goes by the art moniker “Manik”, has led a life of organic exploration. He’s lived like a bee who hops around to the flowers of culture and diversity, exploring colors of the rainbow, and sharing the things that have delivered him peace and bliss.
Manik has used his gift of craftsmanship to make a 6-foot wide jig that has allowed him to paint on a vertically spinning canvas with a full spectrum of colors. Manik’s Giant Rainbow Mandalas are as much about the process as the visual effect. The rainbow itself is a mysterious wonder in the natural world that evokes feelings. Who has ever not noticed the almost visceral beauty of a rainbow? Come join the color show and witness the manifestation of full circle rainbow spin art.
