TQ28 Visual Artists

An Introduction by Mary Kathryn Jablonski

These three artists (Lynne Browne, Francelise Dawkins, and Willie Marlowe) have all created mandalas or tondos in distinctive ways, achieving unique effects. Each exemplifies Tupelo Quarterly’s international theme for Issue 28 in a specific way as well. I encourage you to investigate more of their work, some of which has been inspired directly by the pieces you’ll see here, and to consider the effect the mandala may have on you, the circle itself being quite powerful.
