VISUAL MANTRAS BY M.D. FRIEDMAN
They are like meditating with your eyes open.
The Visual Mantra Collection by digital artist, M. D. Friedman, is mandala-themed art created with specific healing intent. The idea for this collection grew out of M. D.’s Cranial Sacred® psychoactive music project to create healing music and videos. Visual Mantras add digital paintings, as well as some very specifically tuned healing and contemplative tools, to the Cranial Sacred® Project. Please see cranialsacred.com to learn more.
This artwork shares a circle within a square format and is designed to allow your eyes to wander but always draws them back to center, much the same way that a mantra does in meditation. Sacred geometry and numerological elements as well as color, symmetry and repetition are used to “tune” each painting to promote balance in specific energy fields in the human body and associated organs and tissues. Subtle interplay of these elements creates a different experience for every viewer, and each viewer can experience something new every time they interact with the artwork. Original music compositions are specifically paired to enhance the viewer’s experience with each painting.
