    Community Mandala  Artist’s Statement



    The Community Mandala at the main entrance to the Centre.

    When we envisioned this community art project as part of the 2018 Ta Da! Festival, it was clear that we would need the help of locals, and help they did! When I put out a call for tile donations, more than ten people donated tiles. At Ta Da! more than 30 people came to help form and glue tiles (to be honest, I lost track of the numbers because we were so busy!). After the festival three people came to my studio and worked for several hours to help me complete the mosaic. And we couldn't have finished this project without the tireless help of Bruno Roy who prepared the site, created the concrete bed, and installed the tile work.

     

    Symbolically, the many pieces of tile represent all of the people it takes to form this glorious community: each piece contributes its own unique part to the whole, and the mosaic is stronger and more  complete with each. It would not have been possible to complete this mosaic without the help and hands of so many, just as the village becomes more and more of a community with the work of every member.

     Carl Jung saw the Mandala as an archetype representing the wholeness of the Self, or in spiritual terms, the soul. To me this mandala represents the soul of the community. One of the reasons I left Vancouver and moved to Wakefield was that I was in search of community after a very lonely time in a big city. And I have  found community, inspiration, and so much more here in this village in the Gatineau Hills. I couldn’t be happier nor more proud to be a part of beautiful Wakefield Quebec.
