Great night at the Parlor Gallery Juried show reception last night. Lots of interesting people to talk to and hang out with. What an amazingly talented group of artists they have put together, very happy to be in such company. Looking forward to many more evenings in Asbury Park.
The opening reception for the Juried Show at the Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park is this coming Saturday 16th November, 7-11pm.
Andre will be there!
This 30″x20″ [96x64 stud] mosaic is the first one I have created using slope tiles instead of flat tiles, as a result of that, the foliage element of the tree is made up entirely of 1×1 slope tiles, arranged at different angles. It also has a slight depth to it, which while not visible in the image means the centre part of the tree is slightly built up.
It is the first mosaic from an environmental theme I am working on. The tree will be on show with other works of mine as part of the Juried Show at the Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park running from November 16th until January.
Great news, I will have four works in the upcoming Juried Show at the very cool Parlor Gallery in Asbury Park. The show is judged and curated by Jonathon LeVine and opens on November 16th, running until January. More details when I have them.
The members’ show called “Put your BEST FOOT forward” at the Arts Council of Princeton has opened at the Taplin Gallery. I dropped by the opening yesterday, and it was good to see my 10″x10″ [32x32 stud] mosaic alongside the other works.
It certainly was a challenge to come up with something viable with such a severe size restriction, but I think the eye came out as I had hoped, and looked good and innovative alongside the other works. It gives me inspiration to work on other small works in future.
The show runs until October 3rd if you want to check it out.
Following on from my largest mosaic, this is my smallest mosaic. A mere 10″x10″ [32x32 stud] mosaic. My local arts organization, the Arts Council of Princeton is having it’s Annual Members’ Show in September. Due to the sheer volume of entries and with a need to show as many members as possible the maximum size for each artwork is limited to just 12″x12″.
Considering that my mosaics primarily work on a large scale, it has been difficult to come up with something viable. However, with the way this grayscale work catches the light at different angles I think I have something to showcase my mosaic work.
This is my largest mosaic so far, a 40″x30″ [128x96 stud] portrait of Andy Warhol. I see it as my homage to Andy Warhol, which is why I have done this as the first of a style which I hope will develop and flourish. It uses partially coloured elements of the image such as in this case, the hair, eyes and mouth.
I am hoping to produce many more portraits of this style.
