Tessellation: tile pattern sans gaps or extraneous spaces; a specific mathematical pattern
This piece can be marked down as the start to my glass phase. There is something to be said about broken shards. This glass can have both a negative or positive connotation, but I have also discovered that it has a seperatel identity in different light conditions as well. From glistening due to natural light, to reflecting the small rays emitted by ones television screen, this piece reacts with the environment much in the same way that we do. We are built and refined through each of our personal experiences. In the context of this painting, these experiences are the shards of glass. Each unique from the rest, they all come together to make a beautiful specimen of art. The amount of pure time labour and concept is truly heavy in this piece, but it is because of this destruction to beauty concept that every effort was well worth it. A piece such as this which has multiple identities is not just art, it becomes part of the family. It becomes part of us.
This piece does have a glossy background which is accented by copper and bronze tones. Multiple layers of fixative were used.
Glass shards, acrylic pigment, copper and bronze pigment.
