Zellige is a style of mosaic tilework made from individually hand-chiseled tile pieces set into a plaster base. The pieces were typically of different colors and fitted together to form elaborate geometric motifs, such as radiating star patterns. This image is inspired by the ancient hand-cut zellige tile mosaics that adorned the Bahia Palace in Marrakech, Morocco. As a new media artist, my work exists as digital pixels and each printing is an original. I am happy to offer single prints, limited- and open-editions. Any design can be easily scaled and customized. My work looks best on any of the following surfaces: Textured Fine Art Paper, Metal Sheet, Wood Panel, or Acrylic Pane. Please contact Embrace Creatives for more information and special requests.
I am fascinated by the tensions between the minute and the monumental, and the importance of how we orient ourselves in the idea of being “here” in the context of our own historic “there.” The work bears witness to the joy of the present moment through the prism of past moments.
My practice begins with my journey through life, specifically the impressions I gather during travel. I bring together my digital observations of the world around me into a cohesive statement that pays homage the historic places and cultures I visit, with my reality of my onlooker’s outsider’s gaze.
When I return to my studio and sit in front of my screen, I begin to search for the essential aspects of my visuals. I remove the superfluous and emphasize what is important. Magically, there is always some point that I find myself completely disengaged in the subject matter and lost in the flow of color and pixel. I find myself in negotiation with shapes. Then as I step back, I am often surprised by how the subject holds together throughout this process. And since my focus is a pixel-by-pixel process, I am thrilled when it is produced in a large format and humbled by the momentous nature of each precious moment.
