This abstract mosaic panel is made of Venetian smalti on MDF board. It was exhibited during the BAMM West Midlands Flora and Fauna Exhibition at The Public, West Bromwich, 3rd - 28th September 2013. Its dimensions are approximately 49.5cm x 49.5cm. The work is framed and wall-ready.
Caroline creates abstract mosaics because the process enables a sense of flow and enjoyment that is just as rewarding as the finished pieces. Abstract mosaics are like puzzles with no predetermined outcome. It is through reflection on the qualities of each tesserae, and how they will be combined, that the work comes together, piece by piece. Caroline also finds the contrasting colours and textures of glass materials aesthetically inspiring. Smalti tesserae, in particular, can produce unevenly flowing shapes and sizes, which, in the end, form a coherent whole.
