Meditating on Materialism

by Megan McIlwain
 

Virginia Fleck C02Virginia Fleck’s circular collages bring certain awareness to consumerism in our everyday lives. She layers recycled plastic bags and tablecloths with transparent tape to resemble mandalas, a visual tool used in meditation practices in Buddhism and Hinduism. As used, one would begin their focus on the outer parts of the diagram and move inward, as Virginia has done with brightly colored spokes of familiar consumer logos, such as Forever21 and H&M bags. She is subtly subversive in her use of flower patterns and nature on bags that, in normal circumstances, kill nature, a humorous reminder of our carbon footprint. As intended with the mandala tradition, Virginia’s work entrances the viewer in a representation of the unconscious self. Come see if you can resist assuming the lotus position before Virginia’s mandalas at the Citizen Generation’s Charity Bash or view her work online here.

Generous Art will be featuring Fleck, along with other Generous Artists including Karen Maness and Wells Mason, during the Citizen Generation’s Charity Bash Masquerade Ball tomorrow night at The Mansion. Support your community and local art in this Winter Wonderland benefiting Capital Area Food Bank of Texas.
