Monday’s Child - A Weekly Creative Shot in the Arm

Something a little different this week - A Trio of Mosaic Artists - 3 Approaches to the Medium

The art of mosaics is often overlooked and stereotyped as a “hobby craft.” However, if you dive headlong into the world of contemporary mosaic art, you’ll be amazed by what’s out there. The colors, compositions, subject matter, dimensionality, and textures will really blow you away.

We’ve selected three artists of interest to us. Rachel Bremner works in the abstract and employs tesserae of well-planned shapes and sizes to pull her compositions together. Masses of solid color are separated by a busy pattern - in high contrast.

Yulia Hanansen uses pointed ovals of glass to get movement, dimensionality, and texture into her “Jupiter” piece. You really get the impression that the swirled masses are in motion.

Sandra Bryant takes a more representational interpretation of the poppy but very effectively uses color against color for shading the petals and giving height to the stamen and pistil. Again, the pieces are not all of the same shape and sizes. They are thoughtfully planned, cut and assembled into the finished composition.

If you feel stumped this week with your creativity maybe putting some “small” pieces together may be a new direction to take.
