"Piecing Together Landscapes" Mosaics by Kate Kerrigan
In Kate's words, "After studying traditional methods and materials in Italy, I have integrated my mosaic work with my photography, bringing my art full circle. My inspiration to create stems from what I see everyday. I love composition and am constantly framing my surroundings. Through photography, I am able to capture it, the light, the moment, the perspective. Through mosaic, I am able to take what I see one step further and interpret it, simplifying some of the details, yet retaining its essence. Having been influenced by the Impressionists and Urban Realists, I have developed a rather "poetic" eye.
My compositions have unique perspective and tend to be rather emotive, drawing on feelings of isolation, melancholy, solitude and contemplation. As I work on a piece, it literally takes me back to that moment in time, that place, allowing me to linger there awhile longer. It is so fulfilling to see my image come alive, full of texture and dimension. It is a process that makes me feel totally connected to my work. This process, in addition to the time, skill and dedication that go into each of my pieces, makes them extremely meaningful to me and quite personal. I have been a mosaic artist for 16 years and have been awarded and recognized on national and international levels.
