no pattern or design similarities here like the previous posts but the concept of minimalism in clothes and mosaics.
I love mimimalism and as far as mosaics are concerned, there are many mosaics that fall into that category. What comes to mind are the mosaics in Pompeii and in general mosaics where an emblema is the centrepiece and an outline, be it greek key or more intricate and whimsical, frames the mosaic.
now emblema is a Greek word and I want to show you what it looks like.
in fact i will demonstrate mimimalistic mosaics with emblemata.
i need the pictures to be inspired to write. (to be honest today i have no motivation to write).
Simplicity of design is all that is required for a beautiful and accomplished work. Complicated designs and pictures are more suitable for painting or ceramics. When you need to work with pieces of stone, your focus is to translate something "continuous" into a discontinuous object and to give new life to your subject matter. You don't depict, you translate and represent things somehow. This is why complex designs are not "that welcome" or at least easy to work on, unless you are a great craftsman. In class and in the books I read, they always stress the importance of working on a simple design or that your draft is simple. The reasons behind this are mainly technical but beyond that it's the medium that asks for simplicity. It's the art process that becomes the art (object). ..Well at least something along these lines. ....
I had no espresso coffee this afternoon that is supposed to wake me up.
