New Mosaics

I recently finished 4 new mosaics that were accepted into a gallery called Reuse Remixed: Small Works at Materials for the Arts in Queens! Materials for the Arts is a warehouse run by NYC where non-profit organizations and schools can receive donated materials from other NYC organizations. http://www.materialsforthearts.org/smallworks/

The mosaics I created are made from recycled tile, stone and glass. Some of the tile was donated from Trinity Lutheran Church (also in Queens) and their next-door neighbor, Our World Neighborhood Charter School. Thanks to them!

The mosaics are my representations of the four elements and are each 7×7″ so they fit the “small works” requirement. At the gallery opening, I saw a teen take a picture of the “Fire” mosaic, which is quite a compliment! Another woman really liked “Water” and compared it to mosaics by Isaiah Zagar, a well-known mosaic artist in Philadelphia who I took a workshop with in 2010. The mosaics are unframed, making it easier to see the height differences in the tile/glass from the side. In fact, I think I’m most proud of the difference in height and how it creates a sensation of depth or relief. One man noticed it particularly in “Earth.” Even though no one commented on “Air” that night, I think it’s my favorite – using the iridescent glass was fun.

To check them out in person, you can visit Materials for the Arts at 33-00 Northern Blvd. 3rd Floor, Long Island City, NY 11101 between the hours of 10am-4pm Monday-Friday. The show will be up until May 9th. If you can’t visit, photos are below:
