Exhibition - Paper Mosaic by Mary Wells (US)

Exhibition "Paper Mosaic" at La Macina di San Cresci, Italy

Mary Wells is a regular artist-in-residence at La Macina di San Cresci, Italy.

She has created a unique collage technique by adapting the Italian Craft mosaico minuto - a Roman mosaic technique using minuscule glass tiles - by substituting the glass tesserae with either high quality printed papers or pieces cut from her own acrylic painted papers. each paper mosaic is a visual journal of the artist's life. Viewed together the mosaics form a personal narrative with each tied to a sense of place and specific part of her life experience. Mary Wells lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
