Patterns of Light
The design for my Marrakesh Mandala was influenced by Celtic and Islamic tile designs, plus my visit to North Africa many years ago. William Morris used tiling to construct many of his wallpaper and fabric designs. Unlike Morris, I painted my design with the medium of light.
Marrakesh Blue / Digital Light Painting / 2013 / Terry Long
Marrakesh is the same pattern, but has been repeated 9 times in a different colour formulation. I drew and painted the original design both in the air and onto white foamcore and combined them into16 sections and layers for the finished design.
