Apart II

Apart II

Fired and mounted ceramic tile with selectively broken mosaic areas

"Apart II" is another in the 'Difficult Women' series.
I used an earlier painting as a model….In this case I somewhat repainted “Apart” (oil on canvas) using paint glazes on ceramic tile. It is much smaller than the original, and the subject matter was dealt with in lighter tones. When I work with paint glazes on ceramic tile, the images appear bright and cartoon-like….fine with me, I can use more simplicity.
The story behind this piece is much like the original, but more about things in general than relationships. The young lady looks back to her past. Ahead of her are symbols of a bright future. The goat represents the good forces, those of friends she encounters who help her on her path.
The tiles were painted first, then purposely broken in various areas, with textured mosaic elements.

BirdWatcher

BirdWatcher

fired ceramic tile with glass mosaic edge detail

This piece, “BirdWatcher” was inspired by the artist Parmigianino, and Italian artist and his work entitled “Madonna with the Long Neck” from the era of 1535-40. I love his figures for the unnaturally long necks he gave them.
This long neck lady gazes out of the frame from a field with a sky full of migrating birds. I decided to ‘decorate’ and at the same time add 'closure' to the lower edge of this piece with a lovely pale colored glass motif.

Book of Then

Book of Then

Hand painted fired & mounted ceramic tile

“Book of Then” is from a series of single fired tiles with minimally painted images of female heads, often with books balanced on top. I call them the ‘hanging heads’. The ‘book titles’ on her head are mainly what was on my mind at the time…. Looking back on life and people I had known….’Then”.
