An exhibition in Berne, Switzerland, by Chandra, Veeno and David Thorner – open till June 29, 2018.
Three long floors in the Federal Palace’s Media Centre (Medienzentrum des Bundeshauses) are currently enriched by FineArt prints by Veeno, Chandra and their dear friend, David Thorner.
Veeno’s Contemporary Mandalas are images of energy, designed for the 21st century. To her, the circle with its center is a perfect place to represent energy on the material plane, mirroring the existential reality of daily life with its joys, turmoil, fun, and its wholeness. Each of Veeno’s creations is an outpour of her passionate and lighthearted quest into being human and divine. Her driving force behind each mandala is to give a face to something impossible: the mystery of life.
In landscapes, Chandra looks for situations that touch him visually and emotionally. His wonder in moments, when different forces of nature play together and compose powerful visual surprises, can be experience in his art. Take a closer look! Dive deep into the appearance of the images and discover the beauty of the world mysteriously transformed by the play of light, clouds or fog and recognize emotional memories hidden deep inside of you.
David Thorner’s Digital Art is an eruption of creativity. They are full of expressive color combinations, light and shadow, structure and rhythm. His love to music finds an equal visual expression in his works.
The visual sensitivity, the Ah!, the life-affirming sense of wonder is the essence of this exhibition where these three friends meet.
The exhibition is open until June 29. Veeno, Chandra and David would be delighted to welcome Osho lovers! You find more info about the exhibition at
