Paul Heussenstamm is a fourth generation artist currently living in Laguna Beach, California. His passion is the creation of spiritual art encompassing many traditions such as Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity, with an eastern emphasis. He is particularly fascinated with Mandalas, represented by complex networks of geometric patterns, which for Heussenstamm "has opened the doorway into the symbolic language of the soul." His art has thereby, by his account, become foundational, even transformative to all aspects of his very existence. We can appreciate and even enjoy much of his art, finding it especially well-suited to wonderful jigsaw puzzling experiences, though in our case devoid of spiritual influences. And though our own worldview is decisively Christian, we none-the-less respect this artists' points of view, and the passion whereby he pursues them in his art.
