My colleague, Kelley of Rivenworks, (no, not a Tolkien character) has spent the last several years mastering her own style of architectural and fine art mosaics. Knowing her work to be colorful and reflectively glass-based, I was awestruck to see her latest mosaic on show through this week at, “Transposition: An Ancient Medium in the New World.”
Now, when I say awestruck I don’t mean, “Geez, what was she thinking?” I mean, “Wow—I wish I was a bug. I’d fly right into one of those warm felty coils and hang out. For a long time.” I tip my paintbrush to Kelley for following the path of a happy accident (see artist statement) which yielded this mesmerizing piece (and others).
