Inspired by her mediation practice, June Edmonds began The Circle/Curve Series as a way to explore color, repetition, and balance as conduits to spiritual contemplation and interpersonal connection. The circle has a rich array of cultural, spiritual and historical associations. The West African Adinkra use concentration circles to symbolize what is said to be the symbol of "the greatest power." Edmonds uses the circle as a doorway to memory, to identify and to connect to the highest and most mysterious parts of the inner self. Each painting is infused with a rhythmic, pulsation, and alluring energy which invites the viewer to connect with something higher within.
Edmonds earned her M.F.A. in Painting at Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia. The artist has done numerous public art and mural projects. She lives and works in California.
