John Sollinger - Solly at Rogue Mosaics
Mosaic Instructor & Artist
This is my fourth work depicting landscapes in the mountains of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument in SW Oregon.
I have breathed in the muse of the forest and cannot escape her call!
I use spatial relationships to generate realism out of a chaotic andamento.
Many pieces lay on end or sideways, adding more texture to that already achieved with glass on glass. The tesserae lay on top of the black sheet of glass so that the perception of texture of maximized when viewed from an angle.
It was exhibited at the Handforth Gallery, Tacoma, WA, from mid-March to the end of April, 2013. For Artprize 2013, it will be exhibited at The Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum.
