Underwater Mandala Trio

Marti Koehler

(FIGURATIVE, SWIMMING SERIES) “Underwater Mandala Trio” This painting shows 3 swimmers practicing a solid arch while gently turning their troupe. A contrast in active stillness and gentle power is present in their underwater flow. These paintings remind me of playing under the water as a child and trying to create shapes like the figures in the paintings. Once my friends and I were successful in creating an underwater shape, there was a sense of achievement and pride. These paintings are meant to reflect that feeling of satisfaction, once the shape you choose for yourself (your personal goal) is achieved.
