This is one of my four bamboo mosaics that will be on exhibit until June 5 at the Artists’ Gallery in Lambertville, NJ for my 2-person show with landscape painter Michael Schweigart. If you’re anywhere near the river towns of Lambertville (NJ) and New Hope (PA), please join us Saturday (tomorrow) night from 5-8 pm for our opening reception. Our show “Meditations on Nature” features Mike’s beautifully detailed landscape paintings, my silverpoint drawings, paintings of glass spheres with natural elements: stones, cinnamon, bamboo, and mosaics in wood and bamboo.
My bamboo mosaic process requires lots of time, energy and exploration. First, I split the dried bamboo poles and rough-cut them. As my design ideas unfold, I cut shapes, scribe the pieces to fit, sand the undersides flat, and hand-sand the edges of each piece to a fine bevel. I use epoxy and metal weights to adhere the pieces to the back panel.
