About Melissa Mahoney
Melissa Mahoney is an abstract painter whose work features dynamic, circular brushstrokes expressing balance and tension. Mahoney is inspired by the Japanese aesthetic, especially the ensō, a Japanese word meaning “circle” that symbolizes strength and enlightenment. While an ensō is traditionally drawn in one continuous stroke, Mahoney creates her circles with multiple brushstrokes and calls them Vortices. Mahoney’s work is in national and international collections.
