Description Fabric mosaic of Empress Irene of Byzantium, St. Irene Piroska of Hungary, wife of John II Komnenos and mother of eight. The piece is inspired by the ancient mosaic in the south gallery of the Hagia Sophia. This piece is created exclusively of cotton fabric mosaic pieces and fine strips fused to a muslin backing. Empress Irene - Digital file print output has been optimized for Hahnemuhle Photo Rag paper. For best fabric mosaic medium look-and-feel fidelity, a matte finish is better than glossy and bright white color is better than off white.2013 RemnantWorks/Kerri Jones All Rights Reserved
Kerri Jones, Portland Member Since May 2009 Artist Statement My work with fabric mosaics derives from my extensive experience in apparel design and construction. My intuitive understanding of the relationships between color, texture and design combined with my passion for detail and devotion to technical mastery makes fabric the natural medium for my artistic expressions. My primary sources of inspiration include wide ranging historical works of art: paintings, sculpture, Byzantine mosaics and iconography, illuminated manuscripts and ancient pottery. I am drawn to subjects reflecting an archetypal feminine beauty, wisdom, grace, courage and strength. Through contemplation of these past works, I am moved to create my own vision with a fresh and modern perspective of the timeless virtues, values and ideals they embody.
