Mandalas - offerings and explorations
Attention-riveting, award winning prints by Don Cardoza will be featured at Mission Coffee.
"Hypercube" is a nod to the influence of both Picasso and M.C. Escher in what Cardoza calls "Hypercubism" showing the element of time as the fourth dimension. The cubes, though stationary, seem to move. "Margarite" and others are meant to portray the portals of meditation. "I work with Photoshop as a digital painting medium and the line between painting and photographic images is often blurred, but I consider myself a painter not a photographer. I look for transparency and symmetry in an image that I build up in successive layers," states Cordoza.
A reception for the artist will be held Sunday, March 9 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. The public is cordially invited to view two dozen pieces and chat with the artist about his work and life. Entertainment for the event will be provided by special guests including the Don Cardoza Trio. Cardoza has taught piano and jazz band at Ohlone College since 1990. He studied Art and Sculpture with the internationally known artists Nong, Lou Bettencourt and Jean Raible.
