I’m still amazed at the mosaic portraits created by the very gifted Sandhi Schimmel Gold. She carefully places recycled pieces of junk mail and other scraps to create these works of art. The time it must take??? Featured today are a few of her newer pieces that I love. The second on is for you, SB…
I love these incredible mosaic portaits created by S.A. Schimmel Gold, who composes the Worholesque pics with hundreds of tiny, hand-planced scraps of postcards, menus, and junk mail. An avid recycler, she even mixes the water-based, non-toxic glue by hand.
Her portraits of some famous people are fascinating (I find myself wishing I could read the works in the tiles she has pains-takingly cut and glued together to shade and enhance). She also does personalized portraits of people using photographs as references. Being an artist who is fascinated with faces, I just love these works. I’m not sure I’d be patient enought to attempt this, but these faces are inspiring me to work my own art.
