Recycled Assemblage Series Portraits Artwork / Zac Freeman

Recycled Assemblage Series Portraits Artwork / Zac Freeman | Mosaics | Scoop.it
Freeman builds layer upon layer of found objects, cast-offs and junk into portraits whose detail and subtlety only emerges with distance. In his Assemblage series, out of a seemingly chaotic collection of buttons, bottle tops, pen barrels, key caps, baby dolls and other three-dimensional scrap plastic objects appears an impressionistic two-dimensional face constructed from an impressive range of shades and tones... Name: Recycled Assemblage Series Portraits Artwork Type: Crafts Materials: recycled PET - buttons, bottle tops, pen barrels, key caps, baby dolls and other three-dimensional scrap plastic objects Dimensions: Varies Theme Colour: soft colours Year: 2000-2013 Technique: Assemblage on board by using the recycled objects

Spitalfields Life: The Mosaic Makers of Hoxton

Spitalfields Life: The Mosaic Makers of Hoxton | Mosaics | Scoop.it
"Next time you are walking up Shepherdess Walk in Hoxton and you pass that sinister tunnel with the worn flagstones, leading under the shabby nineteenth century terrace, I recommend you take courage and pass through it to the park at the other end where a wonderful surprise awaits you. For the last two years, artist Tessa Hunkin and around one hundred and fifty people have been working to create an elaborate set of mosaics in Shepherdess Walk Park, which are inaugurated with a party on Thursday this week. These breathtakingly beautiful pieces of work are destined to become an attraction in their own right – drawing people from far and wide to this corner of Hoxton – but before the crowds arrive, I had the pleasure of going over to admire them in the company of Tessa and couple of the stalwart mosaic makers, as they contemplate the completion of their mighty task which has transformed an unloved part of the park into an inspirational spot. Taking the lyrical name of Shepherdess Walk as a starting point, the first mosaic portrays the shepherdesses that once drove their sheep through here when Hoxton was all fields. Next to this, a double wall panel illustrates park life throughout the seasons of the year in East End while, underfoot, a pair of pavement mosaics show the wild flowers that persist, all illustrated in superb botanic detail. The quality of execution and subtle sense of colour in Tessa Hunkin’s designs combine with humorous observation of the detail of the social and the natural world to create works of lasting value which residents of Hoxton can enjoy for generations to come. You will be pleased to learn that after the success of the Shepherdess Walk mosaics, the team are already working on an ambitious new mosaic for Pitfield St, commemorating the Hoxton Palace of Varieties, and then Tessa and her team will be moving to a studio in Hackney Downs to undertake a commission for a children’s playground."

Domus of the Myth, Sant'Angelo in Vado, Le Marche - Italy

Domus of the Myth, Sant'Angelo in Vado, Le Marche - Italy | Mosaics | Scoop.it
The Domus, dated 1st century a.C., is in “Campo della Pieve” that is in Sant’Angelo in Vado (25 Km far from Urbino). It is a Domus of 1000 meters squares with many rooms every one decorated with an elaborate series of two coloured mosaics and polychrome mosaics and everyone is different from the other one. The Domus of the Myth is one of the greatest discoveries of this last fifty years for the Central Italy and the Domus is baptized of the Myth because mostly mosaics represent classical mythological figures. Every mosaic is well preserved and the high quality and the wonderful decorations show a very refined, cultured commission and very specialized workers in mosaic. There you can admire really fine figures such as: Neptune with his wife Amphitrite on his special carriage “the Triumph Carriage”, Baccus and Medusa. And then the “Triclinium” enriched with a Fishing Hunting: a moray bites a polyp and the polyp catches a lobster and all around this figure there are forty different decorated medallions and many geometrical themes in black and white.
