Stone mandalas created by Jon Foreman, an environmental and land artist, are works of art in their own right. Jon is from the county of Pembrokeshire in Wales and is known for creating stunning arrangements on beaches using stones, driftwood, and other materials that he discovers. These arrangements take the form of mosaics and mandalas, and they feature patterns and colors that are designed to draw the eye.
He collects stones that vary in size, shape, and color, and then arranges them in visually arresting patterns. The extraordinary allure of rocks is brought out in Foreman’s work through large circles, dramatic swirls, and other complicated patterns. His experience with stones enlightened him about some less obvious attributes.
As a creator who works in various Land Art forms, he is always looking for something “different.” No matter if you’re using stones or leaves, whether in the forest or on the beach, he has also produced works in abandoned locations employing materials like shattered glass, ashes, and other forms of ordinary trash. A wide range of scales characterizes his work; for example, he might fashion something delicate and understated out of stones or driftwood.
