MOSAIC PAINTING

Home / MOSAIC PAINTING

“Mosaic is the art of creating images with an assemblage of small pieces of colored glass, stones or other materials… It is the art form closest to painting”

 

Valerie Carmet’s love for ceramic and porcelain plates was her main influence to use them extensively on her paintings rather than the classic colored glass, stones, or ceramic materials. Valerie let the plate’s decorative prints dictate the design of the painting rather than the other way around. With that state of mind, each piece is reworked and reconstituted until the very end; the process is fluid as new pieces are introduced. They can change the direction of the work mid stream and constantly evolve, much like life itself.

“La complainte de maman fish” is a painting that was inspired by a big ceramic fish cracked plate with its two little baby fish found at a flea market. Some plates collected over the years with fisherman designs on them were used and the piece was born, telling the story of a mother fish getting killed by a fishermen with a hook and leaving behind two baby fish in the sea.

“Les quatre saisons” started when I wanted to use all the colorful and 3 dimensional features of plates so often discarded and found a way to integrate some of my 3D ceramic figurines.
The idea of representing the 4 seasons came to me and I used the colors, details and what each season reminds me of to translate it with mosaic pieces and objects.
Dimensions: 4 feet x 4 feet.
One of a kind piece.
