“My Green-Eyed Bride” Contemporary Mosaic Art
When an artist looks at his work, often he can only see the failures and the compromises. When I look at this mosaic, I see that it is interesting and warm in spite of its shortcomings, but what I really see is a need to move on. Specifically, I look at the cheek and the violets pinned to the dress and think about how much I like these elements of the work, and how much I enjoyed making them. They are done more in a loose “painterly” style. This is the direction my mosaics are moving. I have recently completed another mosaic in a more “impressionistic” style. It is also a portrait of a woman with a landscape background. I’m very excited by this other mosaic.
