Art After Californian Light and Space
Another Minimalism brings together works of art that are made as we look at them and experience them, altered by ever-changing conditions of light and time. Light - natural and artificial, filtered, projected, reflected and refracted - is the primary material in the exhibition. Words by Melissa E. Feldman
Above are images of projections created by Olafur Eliasson tilted Ephemeral afterimage I saw at the Fruitmarket Gallery in Edinburgh this week. I love his use of shape and colour, creating images that transform and blend together from one slide to the next.

"Mandalas are designs that draw your eye towards their centres, and in doing so, focus the mind. Historically, mandalas are ancient forms of meditative art: the symmetrical, concentric circles are designed to ease the overloaded mind and release its deep-rooted creative and expressive inclination. Mandalas are found in deeply rooted and diverse cultures and religions across the world, wherever there is an impulse to tap into an unexplored part of the mind or spirit." Words by Tiddy Rowan.
