The British abstract artist Carol Robertson has been making paintings based on geometric forms for many years but consistently returns to the circle. In her current London exhibition, Circular Stories, the paintings are entirely based on circular motifs. Of these she says:

The circle is the purest and most archetypal geometric form. It has a universal resonance, so is frequently found in art, architecture and ritual. It’s an evocation of the universe and the heavens, the journey inward or outward to the centre: a symbol of wholeness, completion and infinity, the unbroken line with no beginning or end, the eternal cycle.
