This series is about investigation, exploration, and discovery of the technical challenges of working with rigid, durable mosaic materials. The sculptures are free-standing or wall hung, but all present the challenge of working three-dimensionally.
I’m intrigued with creating pieces that deny the rigidity of mosaic and create a visual sense of graceful flowing movement. They are meant to be a visual contrivance, to give the illusion of a flexible organic form.
Another avenue of exploration is creating concrete and mosaic eggs. My eggs explore oppositions such as strength/fragility, and fertility/infertility. They vary in size from two inches to three feet.
I encourage the viewer to think about the emotions that are evoked by form and color, particularly since the pieces are largely abstract and don’t intend to convey a specific message or agenda. The pieces are meant to be explored, considered, and enjoyed.
