More experimentation on this new side to my Organic Mosaics series:
I started using lace as a way to build up an actual, physical texture, as well as establishing a repeating pattern. The purple cameo piece is probably the closest to where I am coming from, with the previous pieces, and especially the Silver and Black Organic Mosaics. I'm still not certain where I am headed, but in the process of researching some of my driving instincts to create these, I have learned that I am drawn to creating these tight patterns, and in some way or another, have been drawing/painting like this almost my whole life, even while pursuing other styles. I also really enjoy incorporating some recognizable shapes, such as the portraiture or the dog imagery, which is loosely based on my cartoons I did in college.
