Mosaic, 2023. Acrylic, ink, and konnyaku on Kozo, on wood panel. Three-dimensional forms of folded Kozo (handmade Japanese paper) are tiled over a metallic grey painted backdrop. The sides of the wood panel are stained light grey.
30" H x 20" W x 1.5" D.
This piece was created based upon two self-imposed challenges. I wanted to explore working with washi sculpturally and in a modular format. I created simple forms that could be replicated/repeated similar to patterns in my other work. I am looking forward to seeing where these pieces take me.
Mosaic could be seen as a metaphor of life where one builds upon experiences and grows from them. I really like the concept of creating something new from something that was broken.
