“Emerging #23″, 2019, 6″ x 6”, marble
As process mosaicist, it is the making I most enjoy. Specifically, it is pushing the boundaries of what it can DO, and what I can do within the confines of keeping pretty strict andamento to say different things, that interest me the most. Line making has become, for me, story telling. Variations in size and placement of tesserae within those lines, allow me to achieve different effects and say different things. These “emerging” studies serve as small canvases in which to try different effects which eventually show up in larger works.
