Satori II

This design, a circle enclosed in a square, has a long history behind it. From mandalas in the East to Leonardo di Vinci’s “Proportions of a Human Body” in the West.


I have been drawn to this form for as long as I can remember. Perhaps it’s the paradox of a circle and square living so comfortably together. Perhaps it’s the problem of squaring the circle, long proposed by Greek mathematicians, that has a special allure for me. Then again it may be nothing more then my love of contrasts.


I have returned to this form several times and I suspect, this won’t be the last time.
