Description An exploration of inter-cultural elements, definitions and limitations created in a fabric mosaic medium.Art video at: http://www.youtube.com/user/RemnantWorks Fabric mosaic inspired by the colorful and magnetic Carmen Miranda.. 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.
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.
