Acrylic on recycled 16" vinyl record
These rare 16" (40.64 cm) vinyl discs from the 1950s and 1960s, called transcription records, were produced by the military. The large format is now unplayable on most turntables, so the records been given new life as colorful works of art.
The mandala is an ancient, sacred art form in which a geometric design radiates out from the center of a circle. Mandala is a Sanskrit word meaning "essence" + "having" or "containing." It also translates as "circle-circumference" or "completion." In various spiritual traditions, mandalas may be employed for focusing attention, as a spiritual teaching tool, for establishing a sacred space, and as an aid to meditation and trance induction.
My eco-friendly mandalas are an eye-popping, vivid celebration of the universe.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
My name is Christine Claringbold. I started painting in 1994, and Eye Pop Art was launched in 2003.
My passion is for designing mandalas and painting them on recycled vinyl records, which I transform into clocks, bowls, mirrors, jewelry, and garden pinwheels.
I love to recycle and "upcycle" materials, and I've found that vinyl records are the perfect canvas for a mandala because the center point is so clearly defined. As I continue to experiment with this abundant medium (there is no shortage of vinyl records in my world!), I am always creating new designs and looking for new ways to share my eye-popping colors and patterns with you.
I live in SE Portland with my husband Chuck and two teenage kids, Tangereen and Julius. I love to read good books, listen to good music, and collect vintage psychedelic coffee cups. For fun I dress up and rock out with the band: Dartgun & the Vignettes. I'm a backup singer and I sometimes play the bass guitar too.
I work as the program coordinator for the nonprofit organization Trillium Artisans, a small business development program supporting local artisans who create with recycled and reclaimed materials. I also teach classes for kids and adults at the 100th Monkey Studio.
