"Mosaic In Paper" is a synthesis of lithographs, photo etchings, and woodcuts designed on the Macintosh Plus computer then transferred to these processes through Xerox copies or laser print-offs. The concept of the piece stems from the Byzantine mosaics and Gothic rose windows I saw in Europe while living and studying in Italy four years ago, as well as a brief study of Oriental rugs while designing the work. The piece is intended to show harmony between the technology of today and the tradition of these ancient art mediums.
