If a picture is worth a thousand words... these are made from thousands more.
"My work reflects society's obsession with beauty in advertising; images that bombard us daily. I re-imagine those pictures and reuse the paper in my work. My mosaics portraits are a purposeful intermix of images and text -found in advertising - on postcards, packaging, junk mail, etc. I hand cut, sort and manipulate thousands of pieces to assemble a a newly envisioned portrayal of beauty - an eclectic and highly textured portrait, utilizing materials that would otherwise go to waste."
- Sandhi Schimmel Gold
A more realistic approach to the mosaic portrait - our beautiful "Rennie" is reminiscent of a Renaissance painting. Featuring a cascading translucent veil, pearl and gold ornaments running throughout her hair. The background has gold tracery/ handwriting on hundreds of squares of paper.
Out in the country in Virginia,
but not too far from Richmond.
