MOSAICS: PIECES OF A PUZZLE
3rd November 2016: WORKING LARGE AND IN 3D
I am very interested in making a 3D mosaic from scratch as so far I have always covered small, ready made objects such as plant pots, for example. One of my favourite sources of news about mosaic is Miriam Bastisch’s blog MUSED Today she mentions the work of an artist called Reiner Seliger. I am particularly interested to see his work as he has some 3D work that he has covered with chalk blocks. A really different use of materials. I like the sculptures he creates which I think sit well in their natural surroundings. They remind me of kilns and I like the idea that they are kilns made out of bricks. I wonder if they are hollow, or if he uses a base? He doesn’t use a very wide colour palette, which I also find interesting, even in his small, 2D works.
