Ice Cream Mandala by HisHalfElf Ice Cream Mandala by HisHalfElf
Ice Cream Mandala by Aaron Bolton (boltonfineart.com), Oil on Canvas, 18" x 24", Original for Sale

"beautiful piece man! keep it up aaron and you'll take over the world..." --Michael Hussar commenting on Ice Cream Mandala

After finishing the central ice cream bowl, the mandala quality visible in this top-down perspective became apparent and informed the rest of the work. The painting expands in a fusion of eastern and western mandala traditions. These traditions are blended with contemporary art references which also served, in part, to inspire the subject matter for the piece initially. Some of the aesthetic pursuits driving the work include luxury, wealth and wetness. I also consider this work to be aligned with the discs suit of the tarot.

The concept alone behind Ice Cream Mandala is sensational as it is invigorating, matched only by the electrifying effect of resting a whirlwind of chaos atop glorious, gilded symmetry. Rich, unique and fantastic work by *HisHalfElf. ( Featured by snowmask )
