I have long been intrigued with mosaic, which derives from a basic desire for order and decoration. From simple geometric patterns to intricate motifs, the design possibilities for mosaics are endless. The symmetry and geometric patterns implicit in the pieces shown reflect this tradition. The intent is to create works which result in an aesthetic and cohesive whole. Created from wood blocks, wood pieces and ceramic tiles, a unique type of mosaic sculpture has been developed by the artist. Once bonded, the pieces are then painted with enamel as a final, important step. The result is a new and unique style which collectively has been named MOSAIXWORX for identification and reference purposes. The artist works out of his Albany, New York studio and has rendered a collection of masks, mosaics and mirrors using a mixed-media technique, where adhesion is made to each component rather than into a prepared ground, resulting in a smooth surface distinguished from the more typical, uneven mosaic surface. These works are a recent departure for the artist, who exhibited modernist paintings in local galleries in the 1980’s. S. R. Berman is an adjunct faculty member of the State University of New York Empire State College, located in Saratoga Springs, New York.
