Title of Artwork: Mostly Matisse (2020) Dimensions: 28.75h x 25.25w x 1.25d Signed: Yes Medium: Contemporary and antique glass beads glued onto a handpainted panel. Wall installation.
My original technique manipulates beads into a composition that tends to read as a mini-mosaic. The visual experience is at once about light, color, texture, and form. I am both painting with beads while at the same time sculpting the beads into the desired form. I try to vary the types of seed beads in order to enhance the contrast, shape, and movement. When I am at work, my beads seem to come to life with a voice unique unto each creation. Beads offer boundless possibilities. Working with beads gives me an inner peace unlike any I have ever known.
