Kathryn Portelli’s Strata – Exhibition Winner

“PIPERS Creek mosaic artist Kathryn Portelli has embraced cutting-edge technology in her latest sculpture Strata Tower. The finely crafted art piece stands almost a metre high.

It also has two Quick Response (QR) tiles that look like bar codes.“Viewers can point their mobile phones at it to upload data from the pixelated code,” she said.QR has long been an advertising and promotion tool in Japan, but the technology is new in Australia, she said.“They have such a mosaic look to them and have great possibilities in corporate art.”

Mosaic Art Exhibition – Art From the Heart – Mosaic Association of Australia and New Zealand

“Art From the Heart, featuring works from Australian mosaicists opened today at Town Hall Gallery. Showcasing twenty eight artists from both Victoria and Tasmania, this exhibition will challenge viewers ideas of what contemporary mosaic art can be.” Town Hall Gallery Curator and 2008 judge of the exhibition stated.

“Many people see mosaic as a hobby art form. They imagine people using smashed plates to adhere to different objects. Mosaic is a very beautiful, traditional and ancient artisan skill which this group aims to bring into the contemporary art world”.

Accompanying the Art From the Heart exhibition is the travelling national mosaic exhibition 30:30 Insects exhibition.

City of Boroondara also holds several mosaic works within it’s public art collection. Visitors may wish to go to the Camberwell Fresh Food Market to see 2 large mosaics by renown mosaicist Helen Bodycomb that are held within the collection.

The exhibition will run until 27 September, 2008″
