When most people hear the word “mosaics,” they think of ceramic and glass shards pieced together to construct a larger work of art. Note that I said “shards” of glass and ceramic. I recently came across an artist whose work turns this mosaic concept on its head. Massachusetts artist Molly Hatch creates sprawling, loosely tiled mosaics using handmade painted saucers and dishes.
I’ve posted about artists who re-work classic pieces of art with a fresh perspective, breathing new life into images we’ve surely seen dozens of times. I especially like it when artists incorporate mosaics into their approach. Nick Smith is a London-based visual artist and interior designer who focuses mostly on screen printing and has most recently created a series of work using Pantone color swatches.
