About The Artwork

The basic idea behind the mosaic is a collage of bird's takeoff photos. This is the platform for artistic interpretation. Illusive black and white figure is being formed from variety of different colours and materials. This are pieces of leftover marble from stonemasons, glass from cleaning the ocean, hardened tar, metals, leftovers of broken vessels, ceramic pottery, plates... Each of the 200 pieces is a individual object that can function in space by it's own. At the same time it is part of a bigger picture which has deeper and more profound meaning. This artwork is pushing us to step back and see the wider picture. Each of us is an individuum, but we can create better and more profound when we are capable of wider thinking. Takeoff is inviting people to place selected piece in their home where it will be a everyday reminder of our consumer habits and will push us forward to become better us. This way modular design is gradually loosing it's pieces, that flew to the world in order to change it. Artist is replacing the sold pieces with new ones which are different and this way the composition of Takeoff is gradually being organically transformed. The work is in constant movement and transition.

My goal is experimenting with mosaic techniques which are very slow by nature. This is giving me the opportunity to collide the slow execution with and idea trapped in a brief moment. End results are often a surprise to a viewer. In my work I capture ordinary things, surrounding us every day, in special moments which can tell us different and interesting stories. Mosaic is a continuous process of translating modern materials in combination with more traditional marble and glass into a realization of visual experiments. Using different mosaic techniques together with complementary colours and 3D structuration is giving me variety of different options and ways to bring vision into reality. Working with different elevations and raising mosaic in third dimension is my way of communication with the audience. Every angle of view is producing different visual effects. In the process of creation I am using a classical mosaic education from Italy in combination with my own techniques. I try to experiment and explore new possibilities of mosaic implementation into modern architecture and also use of mosaic as individual piece of art. It is interesting to observe how mosaic transcend from fragile idea without material form into a timeless piece of art that will last millenniums.
