INFINITELY ACQUAINTED - NOTE CARDS
2013
Note Cards
4" x 6"
Quality printed note cards with glossy finish that really shows the details and the vibrant colors. Original mosaic art work created for Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières, 2012 benefit auction. Front showcases the piece as a whole with accents of detail and work title. The back of the cards has full color oblique image of the work along with an explanation of the concept and lists the materials used. A portion of the proceeds of these cards goes directly to DWB / MSF to support their continued efforts.

INFINITELY ACQUAINTED, depicts an abstract forest at dawn. I have used salvaged mirror as a substrate to provide a "light from within" and added scrap stained glass for the leaf canopy and the foreground with accents of Italian glass millefiore. The tree trunks and branches were left as "open cut-outs" with no tessera, which allows the mirror substrate to show through and form the tree trunks and branches. The trees are all interlocked with one another by their web of branches. My intention with the overall composition is to suggest that between the heavens and the earth we are all interconnected with one another and by using the mirror as a major element, I hope to remind anyone who views the piece and sees their reflection in the trees, that they, too, are part of that infinite connection.
