Are coincidences random, chance intersections between lives or are they predictable connections that occur because of larger interconnecting life paths? This series of contemporary ungrouted mosaics by Heather Hancock , looks at coincidence as a point in time when the predictable overlap between lives is noticed. Tesserae are 24k gold smalti from Orsoni in Venice.
A new sketch with spray paint and vitreous glass on wood, playing with the idea of in and out of focus.
Mosaic Artist – Heather Hancock – HH Mosaics
“In my art, I reinterpret the ancient form of mosaics to produce works that capture the vibrancy and inter-connectedness of contemporary urban life. My current mosaic work uses a personal vocabulary of geometric and organic shapes enriched by the vibrant colors of Italian glass and details from ceramics and hardware. Color and rhythms play off each other to explore patterns and surprises in nature and life. I use grout not only to bind the fragile glass but also consciously as an element within the work in its own right, completing patterns in negative space.”
