Series of colourful mosaic nude figures

Artist comment: This set of 6 mosaic nudes as much as anything was created to further my development.

I specifically set out to experiment further with colour, and with the use of smaller tesserae – much in the same style of the ancients but with the wider palette of colour that is available to us now.

I find working with nudes rather challenging as the final work is unforgiving to mistakes – it seems to me that you need to be near perfect with your tesserae placement, or completely abstract (which I haven’t experimented with yet).

These portrayals were created on the computer and then layed indirect.

I think my next step will be to create some portraits – they’re likely to be even more unforgiving – particularly with recognisable faces.
