Acrylic on Canvas
In my ‘Mosaic Paintings’ I break up the image on the canvas in squares visually disconnecting lines, patches of color and shades, making each square different from the rest. In the Floral Mosaic Paintings, I can dare to say that each square is a miniature painting in itself, detached from the others, but an important and necessary part of a whole. Just as the way nature works: The ‘micro’ is an indispensable part of the ‘macro’. The result is a realistic painting composed of dozens and in some cases hundreds of little square abstract paintings.
