Mosaics


My vision is poor. I am severly nearsighted and, without lenses, see the world as a cottony mass of color and smudged patterns. Perhaps this is why mosaics appeal to me. When I see an image that has been broken into pieces, I have a physical, joyful, reaction. These broken images work in reverse - the closer you are, the harder it is to see the whole image. As you back away, the image forms and looks more and more like reality.
