About the Ebook
As an artist and designer, Janelle Schneider has been fascinated by the exploration of this particular arrangement of shapes, and this book documents her process through a variety of subject matter and mediums. The artworks featured in this book celebrate the visual energy and symbolism of two shapes; a circle and a square. More specifically - a circle within a square. Arranged together the circle and square symbolize harmony, completeness, and unity of the life energy in things.
As humans we live in a world increasingly of our own creation, and yet are disconnected from what truly sustains us. Air, Earth, Water – all of the elements that enable life to thrive, we have lost our sense of connection with, and are destroying. We have forgotten that we are a part of the larger organism of Nature, of the planet Earth, and not separate from it. My work is about reconnection through art to the nature of what truly sustains us. On Instagram: https://instagram.com/paintbetty/
