NEW YORK, N.Y., Feb. 25 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Colorful, abstracted and blurred, Bill Armstrong's Mandala photographs are loosely based on Buddhist paintings known as mandalas. The concentric circles of images depict central themes in Buddhism, such as the Wheel of Life or the Map of the Cosmos. Now for the first time, 20x200, the online art retailer of limited-edition fine art and photography, makes two new prints of Bill Armstrong photography available exclusively on its site.

Bill Armstrong's Mandala 1401D and Mandala 1402D are made from collages that have been photographed with the camera's focusing ring set on infinity. Extreme defocusing produces a space of pure color that changes as one gazes into the photograph. Collectors wishing to own Mandala 1401D and Mandala 1402D can purchase the 8"x10" photograph for $50, which is printed in a limited edition of 200.

"It's certainly no surprise that Mandala 1401D and Mandala 1402D are beautiful. Achieving such feats of artistic daredevilry is nothing new for Bill-he's been making and exhibiting critically-acclaimed work for years and some of the world's finest museums have his prints in their collections," said Jen Bekman, art dealer, curator and founder of 20x200, "How lucky we are for the artists in this world, who create these amazing things, some of which we even get to live with."
