"For me, art is an opportunity to capture a pivotal moment of epiphany that can't be adequately expressed in words. For most of my life I've been a silent observer, and I'm deeply struck by the philosophical implications of everyday events and assumed happenstance. Through art, I hope to capture and momentarily magnify archetypal awakenings that resonate with the human spirit."
Mosaic Art NOW promotes the international understanding and appreciation of contemporary mosaics through quality publications and a lively online presence. We deliver provocative and inspirational content for artists, curators, architects, designers, collectors and educators.
Christine creates mosaics for the home, business, galleries, and public places, and is currently working on her first childrens book with mosaic illustrations.
"Like numerous artists, Ive dabbled in painting, pottery and many other mediums. I have found mosaics, combining my artistic experiences and I have been told I am 'painting with glass'. "
"Many of my pieces are inspired by the colors, textures, and images that I observe every day I see mosaic potential in nearly everything"
"Major influences in my work come from nature, ancient architecture and artifacts, intuitive art processes and slower making technologies resulting in organic, raw and often under-stated surfaces with an unearthed and timeless quality."
"I am an artist. I painted most of my life, but in 2007 I discovered the world of mosaic art and since then this is mainly what I do. I love the work, the hard work of making a single piece of art, I love the process, I love even the uncertainty that I feel until I can call a piece finished."
"Mosaics are of course lovely viewed whole at a distance, with the light playing across their varied surfaces, but their fractured intricacy also invites us to come up close; to touch them, to explore the differences in texture and height of the tesserae (individual components), to experience the harmony of their andamento (flow) with our fingertips as well as with our eyes."
Kim's work is primarily inspired by ornamental art from the East and the West, subtly combining and fusing different designs from Asia, the Middle East and India as well as Celtic patterns, Art Nouveau and Art Deco - to name but a few. A strong element of her work is the inspiration drawn from life's quirky and often comedic nature.
"My vision is to work with groups of people and their loved ones who have been challenged by devastating illness."
"Although mosaic possibilities are endless, bold color combinations and eye catching designs have become my signature style."
