Botanical Mandalas by xYz
Botanical Mandala is an ongoing series of digital prints, featuring British native species in habitat specific groupings, represents approximately 30 hours of painstaking and patient work. Joanna Tilsley is using a unique and creative technique to conserve nature into digital world. Having chosen her habitat and species, the technique involves searching for suitable high resolution photographs of the plants and insects then digitally excavate the ‘usable’ part of the image, working to pixel level, before carefully weaving and blending many images into a layered ‘bouquet’ to create the final geometric pattern.
“It’s like doing an incredibly hard jigsaw where you have to make all the pieces first and you have no real idea of how it will look until you have slotted the final piece into place – and that is when all those many hours of hard work turn into the most wonderful ‘Tah-dah’ moment.”
These mandalas are available to purchase as Giclée prints in a variety of sizes from xYz online shop.
